Quenten Forth has a big secret.

He’s been carrying it for over 30 years.

It is burning a hole in his heart, sapping his strength, making him drag his feet when he walks.

So today, just before sundown, 

he wrote it down in a letter

and mailed it off to only he knows who.

Just before sundown

The wind was high the day

that Violetta, after plenty of

nervous thought and indecision,

finally made her maiden flight 

out into a realm

of endless possibilities

It was time.

Couldn’t delay any longer.

We gathered together

to watch and wave and hope

that someday we too

would follow happily along

into the great unknown

Once we were cityfolk,

all jazzed up with places to go.

But we grew weary of that

and found our place in the countryside.


Now we are still jazzed up,

but we don’t need to go anywhere.

I this really it?

Is this really life as we know it?

At once solidly grounded and wildly unpredictable?

however far apart

Fast and slick

and in love with themselves

Cruisin' down main street

with the rag-top down

Smokin' and swearin'

and checkin' out skirts


Grown but not grown up

Oh yes, I remember those

were a jumbled sticky mess

and nothing less

than a glorious

sunset on the river

could take her mind

off her confusion

There was

no saying no to Sherman.

Anything from a mild warning

to a flat out lockdown

would do nothing but stoke

his rebellious penchant

for showing off.

Mabel was unsure about herself.

Somebody once told her that

she was not a good person

and she often feared that it might be true.

 

But today she remembered,

almost as an afterthought

one good deed that she had done. 

And a few minutes later,

she remembered a couple more.

Oh the unfairness of it all.

There’s the whole town,

fast and happily asleep.

And then there’s you.


Still awake.

Still awake.

Joshua always wondered how it would feel to arrive, what you would do when you finally made it to that place at the end of the street.


Today he found out.

You turn the corner and keep on going.

in all her golden glory

her troubles hidden

of a hand-me-down dress

The day goes so slow, so slow.

Filled with nothing

but never-ending have to’s.

You wonder

Will it never end?

 

Then suddenly it’s evening

and there’s the sun

hanging low in a glowing sky

You wonder

Where did the time go?
