It may envelop like a memory
            Or taste of grief
            Cool like a pitiless smile
            Or press with the weight of regret
            Shield, cloak or camouflage
            My friends advise me
            It’s no place to live a life
            But I’m convinced you cast
            My face into a field of possibility
            That can’t exist at noon
            Or on a moonless starless night
            Because I know beyond a doubt
            That there are two sides to a shadow
            And an infinity of shade
