The School Reunion

the school reunion

out of the blue

into the inbox, a message

1976 high school reunion

weird…incomplete memories…adolescence

did I want to go back there?


I already had

writing 24″ Waste, a waste of flesh and self-worth

I went, uncertain

40 years had passed without a word

a room full of people

once filling my days

older faces lined with pleasure and pain

memories explored

life shared in small fragments

cautiously given

graceless exits saved by the mobile 

food sweating under the glad wrap

glass of wine in hand

wrinkled eyes watching a slide show of the past

helium balloons bobbing on the table

green, grey, white

the school reunion
