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.
