“need this ghost” by Kyle Adams
joyful levels of artistic discussion
is radiating throughout this place.
there is a thirst for simple beauty
in the repertoire and in this
venue, under colorful lights, it is
everyone here is more complex
than the last, speaking to one
another makes this clear
but this does not make the words
bouncing between the walls and
our teeth less important.
in this place, we all become one
in this place, we are someone
in this place we can fall in love
and even though it came and
went as swiftly a ghost
this place gave us hope.
