Days stream drivel
like a pixelized play
on a blurry screen

Where is the Director?

did he sneak away
in the opening?

content to cast the
devil in the starring role?

or is he acting beside you?

within you?

Sometimes I hear
him cheer.

      1. I’ll tone it down or leave you alone. Either way, I try to tell folks lol.

      2. I’m overly talkative and have deplorable social skills. And yes, I’m weird.

      3. I’ve admitted it for 43 years.

        No. You called me weird and I’ve worn out my welcome here.

  1. “like a pixelized play on a blurry screen,” .. this is such a fresh and original image, Tricia πŸ˜€ I love the poignancy of this poem πŸ’πŸ’

  2. “Where is the director?” As a community theatre volunteer I have yelled that more than a few times …. therefore that line made me laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed your quadrille.
