Is it just me?
Is it only me who hears
song cues with this prompt?
“Well I wonder, wonder who…?”
Do you ever wonder?
“Each night I ask
the stars up above, ‘Why…?’”
Do you stay
awake at night, asking,
“Where oh where can my baby be…?”
Are you a fool like me?
“Why do they fall in love?”
Do you stare at the clock?
“How long has this been going on?”
“Does anybody really know…?”
Should you get up and get dressed?
“Where do we go from here?”
Do you check the weather before heading out?
“Have you ever seen the rain?”
“Who’ll stop the rain?”
Do you know which questions to ask?
Which one is the essential one?
My vote: “Is this the real life? Or is this fantasy?”
It’s poetics night at dVerse Poets Pub, and we’ve been asked to write a poem that asks. One that doesn’t answer. This is my stab at it. Come join the fun!
