Stage Left

Auditioning for myself

the lights went down

the sound amped up

my head turned round


Auditioning for myself

the handbill flew

into the seats

the chosen few


Auditioning for myself

last line unread

the words reborn

inside my head


Auditioning for myself

I begged my leave

the stage door open

—a last reprieve


(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2020)
