Tonight

By Wayne F. Burke

Tonight

I could sit in this
kitchen chair
forever, listening
to pop tunes
on the radio
and taking-off
now and then
to wherever --
to the stars --
from spaceship earth,
or stay within these white walls
my pictures tacked-up or
hung, the
refrigerator running, the fan
turning its idiot head,
all engines engaged
for lift-off, thrust, and
trajectory.
