A New Play

(John White)

Close your eyes.
What do you see?
A dream?
A vision?
Your future?
Your past?
Past love?
Past loss?
Are you haunted?
Are you comforted?
You can’t hide,
You can’t avoid,
Any of this.

You close them,
Again and again.
The mind’s lights,
go out and,
set the stage,
time and again.

Write a new,
fresh chapter,
to replace,
unwanted plays,
repeating,
in your mind.
