Dogs 2012

IMPROMPTU ACT
(8/7/12)


you
did not
anticipate
this role

you are
without
adequate lines
and the other
players
hopscotch
helter skelter
upon stages
that revolve
and tilt
challenging
your balance
with every
new scene

you have
no control
over what
has been
written

the choices
are few

stay
and cope

or leave
and say
to hell
with it

you will
have
your doubts
either way

but Saturday
night
in the emergency
room
is definitely
more real
than Saturday night
in front
of the TV

unless
you happen
to be the
one
on the gurney

then
it's much
too real
indeed
