what will you do when
the actor is gone?

how will you smile when
the clown stops dead?

who will you be when
the firebrand cools down?

where is the passion when
the artist shuts off?

how will you dance when
there’s no pulse in the music?

what do you celebrate when
the party is finally over?

we’ve covered our shame
with blankets of expectation.
