still music

Still music.  Listen!  Scattered notes ~

poems, figments of imagination

Desperately suspending disbelief

The drum of my fingertips

Taps the rhythm of your grief

 

Still photograph.  See!  A face ~

Its million pixels a gleaming screen

Eyes reflect an encoded smile locked

Eternal,  in someone else’s dream

 

Still film.  Watch!  A dance ~

Caught on celluloid, copy and paste

Now in a tomb of virtual space.

 

This place.  Where we are.  Unreal theatre ~

We still applaud, still cry, still remember,

We still rebuke, still love, still piece together

 

Still alive

 

They say memories are a long drawn out death

This still place feels cold and cavernous to an uninvited guest.
