Apt. 2B


 
act 3

. . .

an act you might want to skip out on,

you know, to beat traffic

since it sounds more generic than it is.

 
 
 
 
Props are delivered

in mismatched Samsonite,

and unpacking them is tough

–a questionable effort as

it’s unclear whether drawer space

is warranted. . .

and guaranteed most will flub their lines.

 

Unpacking is surprising, too

–as in: did you pack that bag?

stage direction

would include rifling:

suspicions,

stereotypes,

doubt,

and pain

–that last locked an loaded–

and invisible pictures of posed couples

(with scratched out faces, or haloed heads)

near exits

–fire and brimstone, and stairs that only

lead one way–
 
the only stage left.
