A Good Day by Jerry Durick

  A Good Day

I can picture him there
waiting in the wings
ready, always ready
to step center stage

His grace and his wit
worthy of attention
worthy of applause
and standing ovations

two, three curtain calls
reviewers hurrying off
framing his performance
comparing him well to

even the best of them
the smiling winners
who got to say their say
who got to sing their song

I picture him there, quietly
adjusting his appearance
without a mirror, all he has 
is his imagination and his

ability to picture himself
waiting in the wings
imagining himself, ready
to step center stage.
