Ushering in a Dream by Mark Tulin

Visit me at Crow On The Wire.

I want to hear the symphony

for free,

to see the rock stars

glitter up close.

I want to look at your ticket

like I’m reading your palm,

predict who you’ll marry,

what future you’ll find.

I want to shine a flashlight

without disturbing others,

without stepping on toes,

without spilling a drink.

I want to be an usher

that helps everyone to their seat,

that knows the theatre

like a seaman

knows his ship.
