Poem #74

You have an extraordinary talent
for voicing a
"meanwhile…back at the Hall of Justice".
It makes me sad
that you never exercise it
any more.
It is one thing I miss
about the you
you used to share
with me
and no longer

A sad poem about longing for something my darling wife used to do to amuse me and has ceased to do.

In case you don't get the pop culture reference, there used to be a Saturday morning cartoon on the teevee about the DC superheroes. There was this narrator who used to say, "meanwhile…back at the Hall of Justice". Beth used to do a spot-on impersonation of said narrator.
