Lines, a poem


Unfamiliar actors
take the stage to speak
lines with no meaning. Was
there a plot or only

words? Act follows act
and each phrase hangs
above the harsh footlights
for our admiration.

Who would notice were we
to slip out of this theater?

a simple little piece that grew out of a completely different piece that had long sat in my notes, going nowhere
