Were you also an onlooker?
Sometimes I ponder if I will
Linger as an agog onlooker…
I wonder how it would feel to
Step up as the salient character.
Until the timely moment strikes
I will lurk within the shadows,
Wait between the sidelines,
Just beyond the theatre’s valance,
Watching your show unravel.
Should you fancy me there,
Seize my hand, I’ll be there.
