A Person Of Interest

Person of Interest

His birth certificate indicated
he had not been born in the
Valley of Neander,

but as he explored
his dictionary
that day,

a hairy comet pierced
Earth's atmosphere,
slowed and exploded

down the
page of
N's.

A starry glint of realization
lit his eyes and
warmed his soul,

thick lips relishing
the final syllable—
thal,

and he realized then,
at long last,
he'd found his true identity.
