Hide and Seek, A Poem by Will

Writers Envy

I look for you in the white feather that
floats from nowhere, the light footfalls
that pause when I pause, the whisper
over my shoulder while I read; I read
your message in the flash across the
night sky and breathe your orange
blossom fragrance when the nearest
orange blossoms are miles away;

You hover in shadow, your face like
the cover of The Beatles, your eyes
expressing a secret you never shared,
your secret safe with me since secrets
told are lost like silver dollars cashed
for bubble gum; the soft tap-tap-tap
of my pencil impels me to listen for
you in the silence between taps;

To cross the frail, narrow-planked bridge
is to find you but the toll is more than
I can pay and I withdraw my foot before
walking the plank; thought may lead
to deed but silence of that sort pushes
you deeper into shadow…
