Listen

in the dull soup of day-to-day
       we play our roles as proscribed
       names become labels of the things we do
       echoes of you and me fade to grey

in the world of shadows
       ghosts of a brighter past float from room to room
       sounds of a different life wither and die
       nothing remains and nothing is what it seems

out of the white noise of
       the voices on TV and cars rushing by
       the wind howling and birds singing
       the stair creaking and the silent tears

hear me scream

I AM REAL
