PLASTIC PHANTOM
(4/4/15)


to be
walking alone
in the windy
predawn
hours

to see
in the periphery
a white billowing
apparition
float up
and near
through the
dark

to feel
that intense
momentary
fright

causes one
to briefly believe
in the nether
realms

~

a grocery bag
blowing against
the legs
and seeming
to stick

returns
one quickly
to the realms
of the disposable
