At the End of Time:
The Incomplete Works of Richard Krech, Volume II

poetry by Richard Krech

"After the Intermission"

A small skiff (at night)
quickly navigating a body of water,

the time frozen
like a fine oil
framed and in its place.

Using objects
to transcend them,
to see the core
we wind ourselves around.

Winding down,
we find ourselves
after the intermission
still glued to our seats,
wondering how it all
will turn out

and pondering
our next move.
