          On Reading A Short Story Written By An Actor

It’s always one or more:

Talents.

Actors write;

Singers act;

Nobel winners

Play the violin,

And housewives

Who have put behind them

Operatic aspirations

Have their babies –

Cootchicooing,

Cleaning, cooking,

Going back for their degrees

At fifty, sixty, eighty.

Talents manifest

Or hidden,

Baiting,

Waiting

To be found and shot

Into a world in need.

There is a cover for each pot.
