Pillow Talk
by J.P. Plunkett

We’re always searching for him,
Yet have we ever considered
that he doesn’t want to be found?
You’ll catch glimpses of him down by the beach
or at the mall. Maybe you’ll see him at the museum.
He has a dog now, oddly, red and white tail peeking out behind walls.
He’s hard to find too.
I saw him a little bit when I was skiing,
but I got distracted and ran into a tree.
Why Waldo?
Why are you so hard to find?
