Shadow Walk
By Bobbie Troy

light moves restlessly
on the wall behind me
looming
opaque
edgy shadow
making me wonder
how I have
walked so far
lived so long
with this other self
that I do not know

She: Older Than I
By Bobbie Troy

she is older than I
more wrinkled
and drawn
more wine, cigarettes,
and loneliness
in her past

while sitting on the edge
of her seventieth birthday
she contemplates
whether to go on

and I try
to win her back
with a smile
and a story
of our youth

Under Your Wing
By Bobbie Troy

you took me
under your wing
when you had
no wing to give

we were together
in our free-fall
with nothing but hope
that we caught
on an updraft

    All lovely, but my favorite (perhaps b/c it’s what I’m thinking about these days) is Shadow Walk. Thank you!
