Acting Out

Acting out, they played the scene
of love the way they used to dream
reality. Something slithered,
something shook. The light
within the little book sent
shivers up their spine.

On the stage, they found the way
to every great extreme. Wandering
in worlds they never knew. Blue
and green, the ocean swelled
before their dazzled eyes.
Cast the part, and set adrift
another kind of wondering.

Acting out,
they played the part
for real...
