Surfacing Like Well The Loch Ness Monster

For the last few days thoughts of the Loch Ness monster

have been surfacing like well the Loch Ness monster

surfacing making an appearance then going

leaving nothing but the memory of a sighting

going without context and without evidence

except for this imperative to write these words

but it’s a deep imperative itself rising

from depths within me even deeper than Loch Ness

and were this imperative a Scottish monster

it would surface and it would look south toward Ireland

and it would say, “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, Brenda!”
