Eight Questions

Will there ever come a time

  when a moment doesn’t matter

 

Will there ever come a date

  when the days won’t connect

 

Will there ever come a phrase

   its words devoid of meaning

 

Will there ever come a song

  whose melody won’t play

 

Have you let what you celebrate

  turn into celebrity

 

Have your messages been transformed

  into a billboard or sign

 

Have you become a lonely caricature

  of a free and lasting symbol

 

Have your words become mere chatter

   —in a pandering for fame

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2016)
