Her slender fingers rested on her heaving bosom,
Listening to unstopping...

Some try to pretend they
Are not there,
But they are.

Some we revere and admire,...

"The Opera Singer"

The acoustics in the empty room
were clear and light
the night was heavy
dripping wet and stormy
Operatic notes, flute, bassoon,

My Life Upon the Wicked Stage
Thirty years as an actor have shown
That it takes more than talent to make a star,
Though I tried very hard, I didn't get very far.

There is a pronounced ugliness there, brassy, irritable attitudes found nowhere else.
Anger and rage is rampant. Desperation, disease, strife, rape, and murder happen daily.

I could see in detail each of their days
As I wheeled my chair forward-
No one day remained the same
You can always find some difference
Mirrored by choice

Save for a sparrow
