“The Cave” / Memorable Fancies #3385

[“The cave downstairs … And what hangs out there” – Denise Levertov]

       And what might still lurk there

       Not yet aware it is in a cave.

       Not yet aware there is an upstairs

       Where good things to eat hang out

       Speaking, uncomfortably and quietly,

       About the shadows in the cave

       Beneath them
