Marlowe’s Season

Plaque near the remains of Christopher Marlowe in Deptford

The Meta-Pedestal of We…

…who are not here. Yet, here we are addressed,
Sometimes apostrophized, sometimes ignored
As if we were not being talked to: guests
Who are not here yet. Here we are. Addressed
Eternally while poems unspin and texts
Become canon. Some cannot stand the adored
Who are not here. Yet here we are. Addressed.
Sometimes apostrophized. Sometimes ignored.
