REUNION

I went to my high school reunion today.
Or, was it an old vaudeville play?

With actors all made up to look real, real old,
And the plot was extremely slow to unfold.

People would greet me and tell me their name,
And slowly, but surely, into focus they came.

Then as we talked the years fell away.
They were the ones I knew just …
Yesterday.
