Poem: Frank Shadow (For Frank Atanacio)

Updated on January 24, 2019

Frank Shadow

Frank Shadow!

Where have you been?

I miss how you make the dark safe,

With humor that make it all better.


But it's easy to know where you are,

For you are the brightest shadow,

You guide us through the darkness,

With your practicality.


Somehow your soft silhouette,

Smiles at me warmly with its curves,

I see a kind demeanor,

In the cold, creepy night.


Looking for a shadow that's not the same?

It's Frank,

The distinguished shadow,

With a name.
