“Evasions” / Memorable Fancies #4307

[“another shadow, another evasion” – Wallace Stevens]

        No, the bright light is the evasion, the bold assertion that things are just as they are – that’s the evasion. No exceptions; no equal voices; nothing else.

        The Shadow, however, knows, just as the old radio voice told us.

        That Shadow laughed in its hollow, sinister voice.

        Now, we aren’t so confident about laughing. Even if we don’t mean it.
