You are the hero.
You are wanted. Needed.
You are the center of adoration, ridicule, passion.
You provoke thought, jealousy, change.
You are in control.
You can see the awe in their eyes and their hearts.
It must be true.
The world falls away
The director has called, “Cut!”
The side characters take a break.
Blinkered confusion sets in
But only a moment before
The dreadful clarity.
You get off the train.
The director has just received a new script.
