July 4th


Were you there?

Did you come to the park?

The moon, earth’s shadow erased

truth veiled, displaced by the unknown

blackout

pierced at random

by a red

a blue

a white

spotlight

beamed by chance

missing her mark?

to bare a sudden face or two

snapshots of lives

illumined

in Laurel and Hardy parody.

.

The show begun

the stage a mirror

we sat and

saw each other.

Were you there?

Did you come to the park?
