My 'To Do' List - Poem by Lee Rodriguez

My to do list
is greater than yours
but i have more shadows
than you
I stand covered by lights from all directions
for a longer spell
This grants my shadows to do
many things
The shadow to my right is
slaughtering animals and gathering harvest
for your feast
The shadow to my left is
composing, considering and chancing at ventures
to ponder, plan and plot
The shadow to the rear of me is
hauling mountains of glad rags
to a brook to be washed on stones
and hung to dry on trees
The shadow in front of me is
minding the tasks that need
to be minded by your shadow
that is sleeping beneath you
