UnScene

No, no, no

please let it be
just a dream
a smokescreen
to sunset serene

please let me wake
in mother’s arms
wide-eyed
safe from harm

care free
& sure-fire
twinkle in eye
putting out pyres

please not
let it be real
it’s surreal
how I feel

please let this be
a movie
on my HD
TV screen

not this 3-D
violent scene
so concrete
here before me

please let it be
just a movie
cannot unsee
what I have seen
