On Stage
Barbara A. Taylor

let scarlet satin pointers
take the final curtain call,
bow, stand solo, a pair
in the rapture of limelight
for the stars are weary
tired of fame
their feet are blistery sore.
tired actors now
just want champagne,
a good night's sleep
before they do it
all over again.
Cheers to the red toes
that moved us.
