Unicorn Thot

The thought of a unicorn is as real
as a goat butting in the face,
an apology or a disgrace,
as real to our neural sense
as any disaster seen
where?  on tv? or the street
where we live — to all intents
the same.
A thought is a thing, a noun
to be verbed.
We are disturbed quite as well
by the thoughts we dwell upon
as any interaction, even more.
Angry thought leads to war
more surely than imminent threat
without the spark of blame.
Without the slightest muscular pose
we understand dense declarative prose
to be a deciding reality.
Why presume doing on fiction’s discourse?
Thought is indeed the story’s source.
I think.  I say.  You feel.
No thing could be more real.
