heroine

~

her hair

is a stroke of pink

on the brown audience

~

more compelling

than the script

or the decorated stage

~

not surprising to see

her name on the program

Rose

~

in black but for the hair

even her lips

implore the audience

to pardon the difference

~

she, the heroic one

not Romeo

or Juliet

~

not the dead

but the left-behind

~

~

All my best.

Staying safe,

Jane
