T h e a t r e

Old curtain of the stage,
Tireless, over countless years
You have rolled up and down,
And now your single role
Is to cover a hole.

Today, you hide a passage
To a space of backdrop-storage…
And in a gesture of kindness,
The new curtain rolls down
And veils your shabbiness…

Old curtain of the stage…
