Act 1


repetitive repetitions
blindest  of renditions
player on the stage
can you stay on your page
perform your act
get off with a curt wave
close the book
don't miss-behave
the curtain closes
this theater shuts down
did you think in silence
there would be sound
do as you do
but don't break this vow
to perform as masterly
as only you know how
with a walk of fake flair
there is no ending
this game, is the game
of perfect pretending
hurry now
this curtain is closing
is that the sound
of your heartbreaking
hearts can't break here
that is no ending
off the stage actor
we were all just pretending
