Obit Theater


On the marquee,
bright lights
were shining on my name.
Those with tickets
filed in, whispering
something about my fame.
I know I used to see them,
though can't remember
where or when.
Some explained,
why they came;
one rung her hands,
another wept, saying
she was my biggest fan.
I asked how they knew
about my final show;
soon enough, she said,
everyone will know.
