Dim Suspicions

My shadow swears he'll stick to me
Through thick and thin, but I'm convinced
That he's keeping me in the dark.

If I woke up at night, he'd be
Out on the tiles, strutting his lack
Of stuff, roaming the gloaming with

A sexy silhouette, or a
Pert penumbra, doing something
Tenebrous in the twilight zone.

Could it be murkier? Is he
Plotting to make an absolute
Spectre of himself? I'm dead against that.
