Yannis Ritsos

The shadow of your body
upon the earth
takes up more room
than your body
I dress in your shadow
dark invisible
photographic negative—
tomorrow it will appear
all in white
with a black fingerprint
outside the frame

from The Shadows of Birds (1980) [Collected Poems: IDelta ---pg 358-360]
(translated by Scott King)
