A Few Hours More

Posted on Jan 8, 2020

In the frame story

That surrounds their dark misadventure

Where we know they are treading water

Cold and black

Just before the fateful moment…

The third man is on screen


Giving a confessional before his just reward

His breathy delivery pausing




Eyeing the first man,

offstage and unseen

Except by the one who is known

Threatening - if he reveals

What was thought to be forgotten

A secret he suspects

but can he prove?

Who the real monster is…

If he could only rewind

And play back what happened

A few hours more
