One more for hire, a wonderful liar
The actor takes the stage
Tips his hat and seems to bow ever so slightly
Make no mistake, it is no bow
Instead it is a way to hide the face
That's there before the show begins.
The actor also directs the show.
Placing the extras just so
Upon their X's on the stage
Until it's their turn to be animated.
The actor wrote the script!
Put words in all the mouths that he wishes to speak
The words he made up for them
Until those words run dry
The actor even created the props!
Amazing the dedication that's been crafted
In this spectacle that will dazzle you
Until the the glitz wears off from your eyes.
The actor built the very stage he stands upon
All of the words, the movements, the climax
Of everything that he ever needed you to see
Until you were not needed to be a viewer.
The actor drops his face
He spins around, not knowing how to pick it up again
He's let it slip, lost the plot, and forgotten his well scripted lines
Until the next time an audience can be dazzled.
The theatre is empty, the crowd is gone, the curtain closes.
Act 2 needs a revision.
It is the simplest, most intricate events in this life that cultivate slowly to make the greatest things happen. These small weavings through time are a treasures we often overlook. Walk each moment in a way that leaves you whole and not wanting. Not always the way it goes but surely the way most rewarding, most memorable and most pleasing when hindsight sits at your feet, beckoning you to understand the lesson.
