Lines and gestures and numerous other
Things that needed to be remembered.
‘Stand here and walk over there’
Each step with grandiose and
A malicious smile upon their face,
Embellish Character 7 and
Tell the audience that you won’t be making it
They become their role for a few hours,
Then burn in stage light as the crowd
Showers them in flowers.
Convincing them that
They are as they seem,
That they feel the things they scream and
Are living and grieving on center stage,
Bearing everything for their onlookers to see.
No one will see their true identity.
Only Character 7 and his emotional cacophony.
