Train

Poetry

You are the hero.

You are wanted. Needed.

You are the center of adoration, ridicule, passion.

You provoke thought, jealousy, change.

Most importantly:

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.
