The Shadow Knows
A man’s shadow refuses to cross the street. After arguing about a shadow’s rights and responsibilities, the man decides to cross anyway and is killed by a speeding car before he can reach the other side. A crowd gathers around his body. The shadow joins them. A policeman arrives, and after a quick count places the shadow under arrest. Filled with remorse, the shadow dies in prison before it can be brought to trial.
