opening night

She takes 
centre stage
and then
she starts 
s i n g i n g

All facing 
an audience
of flickering 
l i g h t s

         .   She’s perfectly 
               f i n e   . 

The muse
that inspired
such musical 
m i g h t

*

Her voice
all conveys
the sounds
of wild 
r e a s o n

His plot,
just betrays—
some smoke
blurring
t r e a s o n

         .   She’s perfectly 
               f i n e   .

The muse
that inspired
such musical 
m i g h t

 *

An opera dream
a grandiose illusion
a silent stream
of utter 
d e l u s i o n

All facing 
the audience—
some flickering 
s i g h t

        .   She’s perfectly 
              f i n e   .

A standing 
ovation on
opening
