Getting on with the Ceremony

The clinking
of glasses.

 

The shuffling
of feet.

 

The scraping
of chairs.

 

A lapse
into coma
halfway
thru the
ceremony.

 

An ambulance
without sirens
two men with
a stretcher.

 

Clear the
stage of
misfortune
hand out
the awards.

 

Between the
lines where
our lives
are lived,
midgets with
Lugers,
corked bottles
barren of
news.
