"Let's start this Movie" - Feb. 3, 2021

I say to my friend, Youth

waving our ticket stubs

beyond eager and excited

as we move to grab front row seats

before the curtain rises


it’s a film about life

a love story we are told

lived in glorious sunrises

under a mysterious moon

that becomes a plot without escape

confused shadows living in hope and despair

flights of wonder tied to landing issues

a bittersweet existence that ends

with every character tracked

and eliminated by death’s knife


I hope no one notices

the flicker on the screen

the two dark blots crossing the projector’s beam

it’s me and my companion leaving the theater

hoping to see if anything else is playing
