Theatre

in the great play of life

i am scenery

a shrub in the background

with maybe a little bird on it

and I’ve been in too many scenes

my paint is chipping

my bird is faded

probably

after the next production

or the next

I will be chopped up

and burned

in the little stove

that the cheap chorus girls

dress in front of
