Missing Person

I am aware that this offering sounds like madness to most. Arisings directly from being and less filtered through mind do not ever “play it safe”. And at the end of the day, who could be threatened by this message? 🙂

Missing Person

I have looked for him
in every dark corner
in every isolated recess
and have found no one.

I have cried “Marco!”
over and over
but never heard
the reply “Polo!”

It seems he appears real to others
who, while in conversation,
refer to him by name
as I speak with them.

However I have no evidence
that this person exists
but rather that he does not
having found no trace to examine.

Is this the end?
It seems that it is.
I hold a funeral to say goodbye
and look around…

He doesn’t show up.
