Life is not a movie

Sometimes the sky is not blue, but white,

a backlit theater screen in waiting,

bright–

or so I can pretend;

actor, writer, director of scenes,

the production is my own–I am all,

no in between.

But,

sometimes the sky is not white, but red,

a reflection of bombings, of children

dead–

and I cannot pretend

human blood is colored corn syrup.

  1. Your country is tearing itself apart, much like mine…
    Different nationalities, yet of one mind. Same as it ever was…
    Keep sharpening the blade of your talent, dear one. Your edge never dulls…
