Dancing shadows

The second serpent

devoured the right hand

and the devil tied a knot

around the left

to tease and to prise

all of humankind

into the caves where

the chains hold us tight

while we watch

the shadows

dancing until the

morning light,

never to behold the

true forms

always to see the pretence

and believe it.
