• Provisional Sonnet


    I want to write a sonnet consisting
    of fifteen lines but only one run-on
    complex sentence with the subordinate
    clause in only one line that is missing
    yet, and that is why it is a sonnet –
    a sonnet in search of the hidden line
    that, found, will unsonnet it, like kissing
    and the kissee recalls, the opposite
    of Superman’s kiss’ effect on Miss Lane
    to quote from my own ‘I might dream nothing’
    till the thing is the thing is done when it
    is undone and vice-versa! which is why
    there’s real terror in the thought that I,
    having seen her once, won’t see her again.
