Poem - Consider Shadows

The poem “Consider Shadows” was written in recognition of bisexual invisibility.

Consider Shadows

Consider shadows that most deny
valid against the press of night
consideration turned to charm
by the impact of appeal's turn

even as the darkness forms
wrapping around the gentle souls
without malice or ill intent
as they seek comfort’s bliss

surrounding those without regard
for the ghosts that then result
even as the normative
demand falsehoods in the stead

for the ghosts among themselves
pressing outward with dismay
affirming what’s felt within
hidden plainly while love is blessed.
