This is the Good

This is the good time and
the good place - this is
the place to be for
there is no other and
all other stages trundled away
redundant, do
not emerge to  aid me today -
for I have the boards
and the performance, the
gaslights lit and the
precocious heart
beating fit to burst for sheer
effort of lust and will. I
will walk them
and speak my lines willingly
for him who
sent me.
