to deconstruct  the invisible
requires a special math

different rules apply
the process has its own calculus
since the unseen is huge, impudent,
powerful and odd

early in our ignorance
spiritwind first startled us

shattered shelters
split night with light

unknown but real
we called it 

the invisible has popular cachet
as it is among us
in the interstices of the known

it bleeds through everything
colors the fabric of thought
as ultraviolet works
to build our bones

and ultrasonic whistles
through the atmosphere

alerting some
………………………. the invisible
climbs a neuron trellis
in our skulls, tenacious,
persuading us we’re not
