Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

exit stage left

exit stage left


why do they whisper from the wings,

or from behind the stage curtain

remind me of half-remembered things?


why do they prompt me with those lines,

must I hear them repeated once again

will I ever expunge my failures and my crimes?


I used to know my mark, memorized my cues

but everything is dark, the stage has changed

I improvise but I am just confused


I won’t read the script you’ve given me

I’m growing tired of this role I play

I quit, someone find my understudy.
