to deconstruct the invisible requires a special math
different rules apply, the process has its own calculus
because the unseen is huge, impudent, powerful and odd

early in our ignorance spiritwind first startled us
it shattered shelters, split night with light—
unknown but real, we called it God

the invisible has cachet because it is
it’s in the interstices of the known,
it bleeds through everything
it colors the fabric of thought

as ultraviolet works to build our bones
as ultrasonic whistles through the atmosphere
exciting the ears of the prone

the invisible climbs a neuron trellis in our skulls
tenacious, persuading us we’re not alone
