Family Reunion

you're an onlooker in your own story
a bit player watching how it all plays out
standing offstage waiting for cue cards
listening for prompts, waiting for takes
on the next scene, looking straight ahead
at the props--a few chairs, a couch,
a stack of books and a folded newspaper,
the stage directions say, don't look back,
follow the script you're not writing
