Theatre of the Mind

Postby aldan » Mon Sep 26, 2005 11:49 pm

Seated in the dark with flashing lights streaming
Across the eyes of staring faces, smiling, frowning
Laughing cries, expressions change as brightness
Does a dark dance and walks across the aisles
But while faces change the bodies stay in cushioned seats
‘Till darkness falls and lights turn on and then
The streams flow uphill and in the wake of the flood
Lie crushed cups, gum wads and popcorn kernels
Smashed into the seats and floor.
"It is better to keep your mouth shut and to appear stupid than
to open it and remove all doubt."
---Mark Twain

I must agree... interesting. It's very well written and, like almost everything you seem to write, shows a brutally honest view of our society today.
