Imaginary Friend

Move into the light

and let me see you

slither

past the flowerbeds and over the sidewalk.

 

No need to try to hide

from me;

I count the moments we

have left

as sunlight gathers on the edge of the step;

I see my reflection in the pool of water you leave behind.

 

Slanted and obtuse, I peruse the scenery for anything tangible you’ve left

behind.

But, all is quiet again, and you are nowhere to be found.

 

Once more, you’ve eluded me.

 

And I still can’t prove you are real.
