as the Pearl rolled away…

What was seen,

the officer’s notepad

was full

notes everywhere

the margins filled

the questions proposed



Was it real? or

in a twist of ancient fake

was it Memorex?

A tape delayed

delay tape

of what could have been?

Was it real?

The officer

his glasses pushed to the edge of his nose

hat tipped back

gun holstered and

taser off

could not find

the single pearl


and rolling away from the crowd

chased by children.

Was it real?

The Officer smiles

he did not know

and neither did the pearl as it rolled


What do you think?
