The Shadow Green

If I paint

a picture of a woman

About these ads

dancing alone,

and I color her body red,

and if I paint ever

the slightest sliver of green

just there, along the edge

of the red, is it fair

for me to say the green

About these ads

is the dancing woman's shadow?

And then does the shadow

leave off and dancing begin?
