Pedometer

My idea of heaven is a dark,
empty Cineplex where I can watch my
life back with popcorn and some special guests.
The film rolls right before my birth, and with
a remote control I can slow moments,
zoom in or out, discover what all these
background players are about, the whole thing
narrated by my near constant inner
monologue. Some friends and former lovers
will watch beside me for years, judgment-free,
enlightening me as to their own thought
processes and true feelings. And when it’s
over, I will go to the next theatre
and be a special guest for another.
