  October's Child


Crossed by an array of colors, the air becomes viable
where velveteen curtains sweep open to eager faces,
wardrobes on standby, now fading in damp places


Midnight's mistress penciling shadowy figures
from discarded masks inside dressing rooms
where porcelain faces touch fading blooms

Echoes hang silently within threaded cobwebs
of hushed voices, wilted laughter and wooden floors
Thespians walk away from their once opened doors

Dramatis personae writes tomorrow's obituary
Columns of sequined dresses trace tattered pages
of acts one and two - now derelict the stages

The King and I once met The Phantom of the Opera
Mannequins, staring through painted tears
Upon resplendent stages, ovations and loud cheers


Une fois Sur une Étape(Scène)
