As the crippled man walked, his shadow detached itself and slithered away. It slid across the ground, rising as it encountered a fence. It oozed up the fence and disappeared over the other side. It went away quickly, and not for fifteen minutes did the crippled man notice it was gone. As he passed a fat woman with a package under her arm, he observed her obese shadow rumbling along before her. He saw nothing on the pavement before himself; he looked back and up the glaring street light, and back to the fat woman's shadow. "I have no shadow," he said aloud so the woman could hear.
