HEART THREAD: A Fugue, Part Two


There was an analyst who worked free
nobody believed him
so he had nothing on his conscience
it might be a father a lover one’s own lost self —
be kind to anyone you meet in mind’s eye
say:  this is a conversation in my head with someone who isn’t there
stop this, say what you like but only out loud
things can only happen once
in the mind or out there, out here.
Don’t use up the event imagining--
things like this are what he must have said.
