My Children Skirt Around Me

Have you ever felt the aura
Of the invisible man?
That hallowed illusion
There and not there.
Talked about but not
directly
at.
Referred to whispered
precisely.
Warned about
Threatened with.
The ogre who
The punishment to come.
The presence that will
descend.
or
Just wait until
Daddy gets home.

"Dwelt a maid belov'd and cherish'd by high and low,
But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."
