Potential End

May 21, 2008
By Sura Lutvak, Palm Harbor, FL

In back of the rows, you quietly sit
And listen to the list
Of accomplishments
Short breaths of air from way up front
Atmosphere, taught
Unshed tears for this instance
Pre-placed by post red-hot lance
Shuffle out:
Few people at site
Watch as slowly take flight
Immerge from hidden wood
Did everything you could
Tongue attempts to form the word
It rises sour, milk’s curd
Left repeating in your head
Everything which should have been said
