Here is an oblong spot of light in darkness.
No one anticipated its appearance.
Maybe it is a symptom of some illness.
Lori reminds me we are at the theater.
The spot of light is not on the stage.
The actors do not clamor for it to move to them
Maybe it has been quarantined these past two years.
Lori asks me to please deal with the possible.
Maybe it waits for Godot.
