The stand off!

The stand off!

A Poem by andrew mitchell

Shadow me this
do not stay in my brightness.
said the light.
Do not come any closer
or I will engulf you.
said the shadow.
Do what you will.
I’m switching off.
said the light.
Enjoy my darkness.
said the shadow.
I shall return. said the light.
And so day and night
became a permanent fixture.

Now where is that switch again?
as Billy Collins wrote..."feeling for that light switch."
