You wish a friend luck
Affirming "do break a leg"
shows love not sarcasm...

Break A Leg
A starlet stands in the Green Room
Creating an aura of doom
She will face her fate
As a vampire's date
But the star can't climb out his tomb . . . ....

UFO Drama Group
Universal in high-school theater groups-
Final call  from their coach, “Kids, go break a leg!”
Overanxious blonde runs to get the cast.

break a leg
structure seems to soften slightly
under your steps; systematic leaps
up, over & out into the depths. eyes
dilate & grow cold from so many deaths;
no longer wept; burn out. here,
listen, the shout of sense echoes at our
expense, shadows the oncoming threat.
no more resistance, let all awareness go-
as the curtain releases, shields the show....

Premium Member Super Bowl
Amongst the fields of milk and honey
Run tight ends paid much too much money
Throwing pink pig skins
With nary a grin
Nursing booboos which aren’t real funny.

So, get your hot dog, buy that beer
Hear those skulls crack give a cheer
Break a leg
Tap that keg
We're building men here, ain’t that clear?

*Better known as the Nutcracker Sweet ;)

Final scene 
last act 
end of day 
cue dimming lights 
improvised speeches 
scripted words 
in an unwritten play

Clean stage 
trodden boards 
one man show 
cue spotlight filters 
cut the prompts 
a lit cigarette 
with a tangerine glow 

Exit time 
off stage left 
empty halls 
cue silence and still 
fondest memories spill 
bon voyage, break a leg 
curtain falls...

Someone Else's Dream
As white as a cloud
As blue as the sea
As dark as the night 
And as black in a crowd

Decisions to make,
are not mine to break. 
Must be a piece of cake,
but hard to take.

Someone else's dream
are just like a beam
But what about mine—
'cause for them it feels like a—crime

Sometimes I wonder,
if do they even care,
for the things I did—
break a leg—is all I need.

Once the sea calls me
I feel like I am free
For someone else's dream
Is like a cream...
