“To A Young Actress” by Michael C Ford

Perfectly, you call us to
eternity’s corrugated edge.
It’s hard, sometimes, to

flood the world, when you
are not God. And, then,
discover your hard copy

script is full of dull liquid
solvent syllables. When you
need to name counterpart

character lives all the time
your protagonist beat actions,
eventually, find out more about

how delicate the balance is
between the creative boards
you walk on and the divided

life you carry across the stage.
So does incontinent direction
bring on destruction of a cruel

muse?  Or is it only your role in
our sensory rebellion going into
a major production?
