Richard Leis My Unbelievable Man

To see a man

My man

Invisible man

I plan accidentally to

meet every day


I attend activity

with pre-hour jitters

having imagined our meeting

My man

Really a man

how we proceed cloy as

romantic meet cute comedy


and just as sentimental

a flutter ahead of time

My man

The disappearing men

how fleeting in reality


His shoulder next to my shoulder

is warm pressure communication

My man

We're discussing my man

the color of his eyes

His indescribable eyes

the hair on his chest

earth scent human electricity

his hands to hold heft and weigh me

My man

Indescribable man


An unbelievable man


With nothing to show for

My man

this makes either of us not

A man

Vanishes
