A shadow unformed, still and quiet,

Sits out of sight.  Waiting

For invisible rays to create white,

So that it can become a shadow proper.


It is already creating a shadow

Of a man as it grows darker

But needs the X-ray light to block

To become a Shadow.


The moment of discovery

Makes it a legend,

The moment it becomes a shadow on film,

It becomes a Shadow of the mind.


Soon, shadow is not enough,

Blocking light will not satisfy.  It

Becomes a black hole, sucking light

And life from cells and personality alike.


Destroying the possibility

Of poetry.
