The Neighbor No One Sees by Celine Rose Mariotti

Yes, Ida Manley
Who sees her?
She is the neighbor
No one sees,
Is Ida real?
Does she talk?
Does she read?
Does she eat?
Does she watch TV?
She is the neighbor
No one sees,
How old is Ida?
Is she as young as 25?
Is she retired at 55?
Is she older and
embroidering at the
age of 95?
Or is she eternal
and now 205?
Is Ida real?
She is the neighbor
No one sees.
