I once almost wed an invisible lad.


My mother and father were sure I was mad.


He gave me a lily, translucent and white


And he said, "I am here, only out of your sight."


We went strolling along in the bright boardwalk sun


He gave me a bear he'd invisibly won.


Oh, the hours I spent, as our courtship progressed


With my Mother and Dad and our "is-he-there?" guest.


And slowly (but quickly) with needle-sharp joy


I realized I loved the invisible boy.


So one night, I feigned a farewell at the door


And crept to my room to be with him some more.


And I didn't cry out, but I kissed him instead


When I felt the invisible boy in my bed.


And he kissed me right back, put my hands to his form


Unseen, but so beautifully, wonderfully warm.


But then-- such an awful confession to make!


It was then that I made my most mournful mistake.


As we lay there entwined in our twilight embrace,


I said, "Darling, I wish that could see your face."


Though I meant no offence and had no ill-intent,


The most meaningful meanings are often not meant.


He silently rose from my arms, and I then


Never saw my invisible lover again.


Long years I have spent, crossing all the world's span


But how does one find an invisible man?



So if you should meet, in your paths wide and free


A man you can sense and can touch, but can't see--


Perhaps contemptlating the heavens above him--


Would you, oh, would you please tell him... I love him?

Questions left in cooling sand


Are swept away each morning,

Once upon a land called Umbra


There grew a shadow-tree


Casting cool and friendly darkness


For all the Shadow-folk to see. 



It grew from earth as black as ink


With bark of silver-gray


Its...

You cannot domesticate sentences.


Believe me, I gave it a shot.


They're adorable when they're just fragments,


But complete, they're emphatically not. 


They'll leave subjects all over...
