A trick of the light

A trick of the light

I was working on this post when I heard, “psssssst,” from down below.

I looked down. I saw my shadow.

I said, “Was that you?”

My shadow said, “Yes.”

I said, “What do you want?”

My shadow said, “Just wanted to say hi.”

I said, “Hi. I gotta get back to work.”

My shadow said, “What are we working on?”

I said, “Not we. Me.”

My shadow said, “But we’re doing it together.”

I said, “It seems like that. But you’re actually a parroting replicant silhouette of what I’m up to.”

My shadow said, “If that’s the case, how am I able to respond to you?”

I said, “I’m a ventriloquist.”

The shadow said, “But I don’t see your mouth moving.”

I said, “I’m very good.”
