There is no dress rehearsal
Just a script that I’ve never read
A sad story that is universal
A vague idea of what

Is it curtains already
I haven’t learned my lines

“We need to talk when you have a chance”
I stood frozen in that Gainesville venue
Not knowing how to react

Socialized and put up
a wall
Anything to prolong
the chances
Before confirming she was really gone
I crossed SW 2nd Street
Made the call and stared at my feet
“She passed away about
an hour ago
While you were onstage living the dream”


from Stage Four, released September 16, 2016
