My other me

I am a dark soul.
I lurk in the corners of the night,
hang around alley ways
and under steep overhangs
in industrial areas.

But there is another side
of me
It is jouncy
It is daylight
It is me bouncing down sidewalks.

I cannot help myself
as I smile and wave and laugh
despite the odd looks of strangers
who are curious as to 
the object of my joy.

It's the music, I want to say
in my mind
in my inner ear
that keeps be going
past the gloom
with a smile.

But my dark side wonders, too.
Who are you? he says
As he pokes his head
into the gray rain 
and feels a 
shudder of cold.
