The Gophericity of Shadows




We mistake
what we think of
as shadows
for our shadows
for we are the shadows
of shadows,
more luminous and
dimensional than
their flickering
incorporeal presence.

So where then, are
our shadows,
the shadows which possess
a materiality and radiance beyond
the pallid evanescence of
our bodies?

There is no other
world.

Our shadows are
inside us,
the vivid caves of
our awareness
rhizomatic gopher holes
connecting
each of our hopeful, burrowing
gopherselves
to the others,
gopherial or divergent,
and to the possibility
of tunneling,
and to the shadowy
great eye of
earth itself.
