This is the Good

This is the good time and
good place - this is
the space to be for
there is no other and
all other stages trundled away
redundant, do
not emerge to aid me today -
for I have boards
and 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.
