A Traveler

Humming happily, I pack into my luggage the trophy awarded me for my feature screenplay, adapted from one of my stage plays.

Ah, writing for the American theatre! Shakespeare led me to the stage when I first read Hamlet in college.

And yes, I remember a playwright who, during a visit to New York City, once said, “When I come to Broadway, I see a finish line.”

long road
weary of its bumpiness
I take a turn
a child greets me
and I smile back
