waiting to be retold

Dedicated to Melvin Lloyd Rinehart
August 9, 1953 – January 15, 2014

the stories have grown silent
tucked away in the corners
of a wild imagination
neither asleep nor awake
but simply resting on a shelf
up above outstretched arms

they will never be forgotten
and they will always be true
their beauty down-to-earth
but now ethereal
lying in a perpetual state of
anticipatory retelling

january two thousand fourteen
