Lawrence Raab The Scenario poetr y "Harry," someone tells me, "for that kind of money bad things happen to people." Which was how I made the connection between money and nothing, and saw the street after midnight where I'd be outnumbered and alone under the bridge. But there's always another scenario, and in it the plot will be treating me quite differently. I might be standing with you by a lake at twilight. I might hear some kind of bird singing, and feel lucky. "We don't like to say much," others told me, "because we don't want to lose our lives." That made sense, I respected that, and I believe the scenario wanted me to feel the same, meaning afraid, meaning awestruck at all the bad things that can happen to people, then uncertain if the opposite could have been arranged instead-- like walking out into the sun without even a penny in my pocket, wondering where you might be. I'm back in the city right now, quite well dressed in fact, and waiting for a train. "Harry," the man behind me says, "don't stand too close to the edge. At least not yet." FaLL 2014 / THE
