“Tell and Show”

“Know it and go on out the yard. Go on.”

— Beloved by Toni Morrison

 

Life slips away

in headaches and worries

which clutter what is write.

A sad song sings

of lovers lost,

friendships foregone

in the Friday night lights

of heady existence.

 

Sometimes it seems so long,

those years stretching to

lives unlived,

characters waiting in

the backstage of my dreams;

some happy, some sad,

some good, some evil.

As ever, the show goes on.
