Strange creatures spring out of my shadow

Strange creatures spring out of my shadow
pretending they're not there
when I look at them
playing hide and seek
in the afternoon sun
under dull neon tubes
and warm yellow lights
they disappear when I catch them
make me look like a madman
when I scold them
and get rid of them in the dark
until the first ray of light
opens the door ajar again
bringing them back 
senselessly frolicking
merrily jumping
like gnomes in an orgy
feasting at my expense
behind my back.
