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 fairy tale endings

Brothers Grimm indeed

Readers under lamplight

Glasses perched

The end of my life

Adrift in a Hemingway novel

Old and full of sorrow

C. Lin Rawlins May 2002 Revision
