The Grand Finale

The curtain rose on a cloudless night
Once More! the crowd clamored

A lone table across the room, a candle
Flickered

Shooting stars lit the sky like confetti

Bowing to the maestro in the pit
Impossible had no meaning

Fireflies sparked in anticipation
Bus service was cancelled
The daily mail, undelivered

At that moment
That precise moment
The telephone rang

Gently, I lifted the phone off the
Cradle

And heard the words I had waited
So long to hear
