Imagining Hamlet

Listening to the play,

obsessing on the words,

what Ophelia will say,

the melee with the swords.

.

A radio adaption,

scene by unseen action,

and imagine all the people—

yes, all of them, go on!

One, two, three—

Yes, even the ones

that you do not know;

the ones that eat scones

and the ones that eat scones;

the sloths and the sparrows

(in people terms, that is)

and when your imagination narrows,

perhaps admit that the rest are embroiled

in silence.
