strength

you are the charlie brown of my nighttime,
the single insecurity i cannot warm,
into whom i cannot shake sense
and from whom i fail to draw
the deep waters of confidence
except by accident and then
abundantly, spastically,
in splashing fits and leaps
without reservation. you are the geyser
i never would have guessed,
a fount of sudden disclosures that change
the entire investigation: unlooked-for,
and until now very underrated.
you represent deep imagination broken
by a brief surfacing of myth-in-fact,
at once larger and more powerful
than anticipated, elusive as well,
slipping again into the realm
of the unnoticed, the overlooked,
the assumed. i will always want you back.
