Vivat Rex

Vivat Rex

Born in 1936, our Rex
an old fashioned movie house.
was not a multiplex .
For a few years it was alive
but eventually expired
in nineteen-eighty-five.
We treasured our ‘king ’
and its closure to all of us
was a painful sting.
We waited with patience
for many years, in silence.
Now the gods have spoken:
the Rex once again is open.
