NaPoWriMo: Week 1

2 Apr

After the Pageant

Who are you after the pageant
naked in the dark
your spotlight faded
your audience gone?

Who stares back alone
from beyond the broken mirror
when there’s no one left
but you to see?

Red Light/Green Light
[Inspired by Like That Girl by “Sweepy Jean”]

Red Light
Stop
I sit with Jean
in the passenger seat watching
as SHE walks past
we, the Homecoming Queen and
Daydream Believer
lost in thought
about who SHE is
her story; her song
a pedestrian sauntering
across our road less traveled
bursting our bubbles
about who the thought we’d become
who we are
and the possibilities reawakened
and laid out before us
Green Light
GO!

    That is so cool, Micael, thank you! I like the idea of the Homecoming Queen riding shotgun! 🙂
