Final Cue

Poetry By: Wilbur

The word "line" contain a multitude of meanings that keep us company as we live our lives -- silent, unnoticed, present.

A rope, a line
A tug of war
A lifeline thrown
Pulls you to shore

A line drawn deep
Scored in the dirt
A line writ swift
To carry hurt

A line that's strung
In strong sunlight
Where washing's hung
To dry in flight

A line that's found
To be surefire
In catching girls
With quick desire

A line of prose
A line of chat
A line that silhouettes
A hat

A line of hem
A line of talk
A line of brick
To make a walk

A line one toes
A line one hates
A line that shows
You've come too late

Your warps and wefts
Pulled into line
Weaving fabric
Strong and fine

Shorelines, tree lines
Townlines, queues
Dotted lines
Sign here or lose

Double yellow
Dotted white
No more passing
Turning right

Lines for learning
Lines for rules
Lines for burning
Lines for fools

Lines you wait in
Lines gone slack
Lines you blurt out
Can't take back

Lines you make
To mark your place
Lines of work
That mark a face

Line your drawers
All fresh and clean
Line your pockets
Magic beans?

Say your lines
Walk them too
Set your lines
Haul them through

Ride a bus line
Into town
Line things up
Knock them down

Lines of lovers
Ceaseless mesh
Lines of others
Crisscross flesh

Timelines ripen
Life comes due
End of line
Final cue
