Shadows

Shadows
1st draft

Shadows of people
I thought that I knew
by the shape of their
shadow.

Shadows simply show us
that something
blocked
the sun.

We have little light
except sunlight,
in the big scheme of things,
even though
you may think otherwise.

Now what I want to know,
what do those other particles do?
Those little neutrinos that go straight through
your
heart.

Where is their shadow?
(or is it a trail?)
