Across the street we have a visitor
2014-12-09 13.14.04He is only here for a little while.

Soon, in a week or two
he will melt
back into the box
in the basement

He has a friend who likes to visit
almost every night
before bed
2014-12-09 13.11.39She never asks
(even if she could speak, I’m sure she wouldn’t ask)
“is he real?”
It’s all real
to her.
