deconstructing the invisible
has its own math
different rules apply,
the process has a special calculus
since the unseen is huge and impudent
powerful and odd

early in our ignorance
windspirit startled us
shattered shelters
split night with light

unknown, but real,
we called it 

the invisible has popular cachet
being as it is among us
in the interstices of the known
it bleeds through everything,
colors the fabric of thoughts
just as ultraviolet works
to build our bones

and ultrasonic whistles
through the atmosphere

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