My shadow

Write a post about anything you’d like, but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph:
“He tried to hit me with a forklift!”
Photographers, artists, poets: show us a NON SEQUITUR. 


He works in strange ways
This follower of mine
He wakes up at morning
And trails me all day

As I brush my teeth
He mimics my actions
And as I walk to the busstop
I see he is right behind

Is he friend or foe?
This shadow of mine
Will he show his face?
Or always lurk behind?

Then one day as I walked
A construction site
I imagined –
He tried to hit me with a forklift
