Floating in Superfluidity

Walking the perimeter, passing
all the exhibits, showing support,
affirming a historic, landmark
decision, stopping to say hello,
seeing people who don’t see him
except to offer the perfunctory
nod and move on to important
matters, he thinks to himself, he
could vanish right this very min-
ute and it wouldn’t matter, in
fact, he has vanished and invisible
he watches people flit here and
there doing things they believe to
be urgent and needed. He thinks
of himself as floating right up to
the door of the car whereupon
he comes back to earth, climbs
in and drives away unnoticed.
