 Invisible Friend

It’s ok to have an invisible friend 

Even if he’s your only friend 

He exists as long as you

Continue to be someone

Who can be seen

It’s ok to talk to yourself

So long as you don’t shout.

And make like a ventriloquist—

Only the most anally observant 

Of us can see your lips moving.

It’s ok to wake up early 

Just to commune with alone 

But don't mistake the silence

For your oldest friend 

Pausing before he tells you

The answer to the question

You’re afraid to ask anyone else
