Poem #17

April 1990

how I got into theater
in the first place was
by starring in the
eighth grade play

which we wrote ourselves
adapting scenes from old
archie comics I was betty my
brunette friend was veronica

I loved everything about it the
memorizing lines and evening
play practices the backstage
hubbub of putting on makeup

even the singing and dancing
since of course it was a musical
I was hooked and would remain
so for the next half dozen years
