Florida Theatre In The Afternoon

As lights go low,
white hair rows fade
like retinal after images.
A projector whirrs
in a preview of coming attractions.
The audience, like emergency room patients,
awaits with expectations -
an anesthetic to escape -
if only temporal,
life's fear of ending credits.

In a preview comes Meg
with wrinkles worn,
mother to a younger cast.
In recent past,
her young lover’s e-mails we read
and sped across America
to glimpse a twenty something, boyish Tom.
Moans escape -
laments to a reflection done by a makeup man.
