Et alia

Why speak alone when
The lives of many
Resound through telling
Decades of stories
Adventures spanning
Continents flourishing
Details lived experience
Pictures of the mind
Old time movie reel
Spinning behind eyes
Us watching the reveal
Based on non-fiction
Told with endless love

When people and places
Elude you now
Take a solitary bow
For work of fiction
Vicariously through
Imaginary friends
No less delightful
On the hearing
Though how marvellous
To have dedications
On front pages
To those who wielded
The wand of pen
Beside you
