Richard Schnap- A Poem


He set out to write
The biography of a man
Known only from rumors

A vague presence
That somebody seemed
To quite remember

It was claimed he went
To a variety of schools
But no records could be found

And to have been married
To a woman who had
No memory of him at all

It was as if he was just
A character in a book
Absent from any library

Or the hero of a film
With a fictional script
That was never made
