The club house is empty. The desperate voices silent in the jukebox. No clank from a cueball. My parts are on strike. Practicing social distancing, each has decided to stay  home and watch reruns – Leave It To Beaver, Father Knows Best, Road Runner, Gilligan’s Island, Julie Childs, the Galloping Gourmet, Mr. Ed, followed by My Favorite Martian. Me, I’m going home to watch Hogan’s Hero, a bunch of prisoner’s of war making the best of being captured.


Note: this piece makes more sense if you are familiar with internal family systems therapy or any inner child work.
