Hand Shadow Puppets

Henry Fuseli – The Nightmare – 1781


we used to jest with shadows

creating harlequins of them

permitting ridiculing solemn

‘fore the age of conscious sorrows

but now, weary, old and sleepless

the puppets’ turn to toy with us

playgrounds of inner torment does

by your demons never restless
