"The Creation of the Sun and Moon" by Michelangelo‘Celestial Teevee’ and Other Poetry by R. Bremner The Society March 16, 2017 Beauty, Humor, Poetry 1 Comment Celestial Teevee Something that’s always puzzled me: Does the Creator watch us on celestial teevee the way we watch Modern Family? If so, can He (She? It?) switch channels? (To other worlds, galactic variety shows?) When does He get up for beer and pretzels, since there are (I assume) no commercials? But most of all, I wonder what if our series is cancelled? Of course, if someone with imagination can swing the deal, we may come back in syndication. For E.J.O., Jr. You create for yourself grand objectives, impossible all to see through, then despair in your lonely perspectives for those that you have failed to do. But I ask you please to remember that you’ve lost far less battles than won; and to look back in pride each December at all the year’s seen that you’ve done. R. Bremner, of Glen Ridge via Lyndhurst, NJ, USA, is a former cab driver, truck unloader, computer programmer, and vice-president at Citibank. He writes of dead kings and many things he can’t define, incense, peppermints, and the color of time. Ron was in the very first issue of Passaic Review alongside Allen Ginsberg, and has appeared in International Poetry Review, The Society of Classical Poets, the Journal of Formal Poetry, Paterson Literary Review, and sundry elsewheres.
