Illustration by Alexa M. RemalanteAs echoes of trying years

sing for me this future

up-and-coming;

waltzing in this fraction

of a moment I grace—

The ballroom of victory.

Notes split and strike high, beam

at tasseled hats parading the sky.

Laughter-pose: trapped inaudible

in photographs untouched

by time. I take center stage

resounding the query:

“Why the hoopla:

for goodbye, or hello?”
