There but not there

He is not supposed to be there but he is
like a ghost who can’t rest
like a stain that won’t come off
He is there where he shouldn’t
in the middle of a conversation
about the weather, the new hit TV show
or anything random like that
He pops up like a thought that comes
zooming fleeting sweeping right by
just when it’s least expected
like some random information that’s
supposed to be buried deep within
He’s in a movie a song a picture a feeling
He’s everywhere–
in every face seen in every voice heard–
in everything
He’s there when he’s least expected
creeps up in unlikely places
but never really there not at all not at all
Never really there at all
