Members of the Town

Pictures of health
all true to themselves,
they can make pledges
that can be kept.

There are actual conversations
with speech boldly, openly spoken,
sometimes gracefully,
and they all know how to marvel.

They can divert themselves
in real play with wooden mallets
and paper cards
or picnic in the sun.

They can take, without shame,
what is screened in as the best, the cream
of the arts and smile in appreciation
as they consume it.

They never hide themselves
alone in the dark,
compensating for missed company
and making up lies.
