    I sit at the bus stop
    Peering through crystal frames
    Of the opera, try to catch the first breath
    Of the teetering poems abandoned by mistake.
    What is there in a name? : impossibility that rushes
    through the autumn air, and sheds the signs, and gasps,
    and unforgotten tilt of head upon a shoulder, two pairs of feet
    that shuffle leaves under a fake indigo ceiling; a single tear luminous
    behind the window glass, my own and lone reflection to the midnight sky.

      I feel like this is a lament- its so full of loneliness and moments when we might have grasped something but just missed the chance.

    I like that it includes so many little flashes of moments working its way through the scenes of a relationship and how we might remember those times when we felt like we'd found a place.

    Great mood running through the lines, and I really love escapes dined poem bit- quite relatable but works great metaphorically also.

      I really like this a lot! It looks like something I would write. I've used this exact format with the growing lines also a few times. I'm glad to see someone else use it like this. I can also totally relate to the feelings here. There is something very odd about bus stops, especially in autumn light, you managed to capture that perfectly here. Good work!

      All the world is but a stage and
    in autumn how brisk become the players.
    Aye Yorick I knew her well. I was there
    at the end you know. We thought it just
    a touch of fever.
    Therefore you can plainly see
    that her expiring came
    as quite the shock!!
    Then when arsenic was discovered!
    It became a case of skullduggery and
    now of course the game’s afoot?

      i got that "singing in the rain" feeling from this...but with a much more somber mood...not a happy dancing, but a sad shuffle of lonliness...

    operas are so often tragic...beautiful singing but usually by the hero or heroine who is lamenting a lost love one.

    this gave me that feeling.

    should it be "an unforgotten" ?

    moody moody moody...but in a good way..rushing through autumn toward winter...

    i want it to be cold, because i feel cold, very cold.
