Last Full Show

Here is my fourth entry for this month’s Forgotten Poetries project. This piece was written last year, December 19th.

Pull your hand away
Dry the tears from your eyes
Look around, check for signs
Before the lights turn on
and the world returns
to how it used to be
before you came along
Look around
See them all walk out
The door
But stay where you are
We’ll sit here for another hour
Just stay right there
Don’t reach for my hand,
Don’t play with my hair
Just sit and watch
The movie’s about to start
We could have gone home
Now we’re in the same old theatre
Cold and alone

A corporate tough cookie with the soul of a gypsy. Professional bathroom singer. Teacher. Poet. A light-eyed dreamer who nitpicks for a living as she waits for redamancy.
