acting is such sweet sorrow

the delight of dissembling

the dismay of reality

a hat, a coat, a stick.

transported in imagination

where life becomes malleable

and reinvention rules

a canvas of emotions

painted anew every day

a sumptuous sunset

a leaf laden forest

distance no object

backdrops defy geography

in a perfectly unreal world

where problems are solved

and ending clear-cut

emotions packed away

to be worn the next day

how lovely to be able to step back from life

and pretend.
