Greek Tragedy


Greek Tragedy

White screen
Pen or typed words
Keystrokes of pain
Like Greek tragedies
My life is unveiled
Opening of Oedipus
Laughter of hysterics
Pale faces in darkness
I am displayed
Fluorescent people
In seated rows
Oprah talk to me
On your best seller list
Get the latest in print
Once upon a timelessness
Happily ever after a sarcasm
No fairytale endings
Brother's Grimm indeed
Readers under lamplight
Glasses perched
The end of my life
Adrift in a Hemingway novel
Old and full of sorrow

Carrie Lin R. Jones May 2002 Revision©
