SHADOW

Oh no, not so, and now you say
          that it could not
Have possibly occurred that way,
          the merest thought

It could be otherwise must be
          dismissed. It was
Illusion of some sort -- to see
          the moment pause,

That face appear. You knew how far
          she'd come, but when
You failed to speak, the way things are
          flowed back again.

Jared Carter’s most recent collection, The Land Itself, is from Monongahela Books in West Virginia. His Darkened Rooms of Summer: New and Selected Poems, with an introduction by Ted Kooser, was published by the University of Nebraska Press in 2014. A recipient of several literary awards and fellowships, Carter is from the state of Indiana in the U.S.
