SOA 2016 POEM

“16th Annual Summer One Acts” 

There’s a man painting
a song about another going home.
And there’s two women 
wanting to adopt & raise a child,
when another is babysitting an adult. 

There’s a cat stuck in the middle
of every day America,
where even a shoe becomes a threat.
And there’s a husband giving a wife
an unexpected gift that releases her fears.

There’s a couple that sought their past fate
being handed to them in a dreamlike state.
And a performance of a lifetime:
tricking friends into thinking
that a decade old marriage was about to fail….

When in reality ~ it was a game, too,
where even the weirdest of wishes come true.
