Performance Anxiety: Nightmare

Nightmare

Bassoons are idly chuckling in the orchestra,
and in the aisle, popcorn crackles underfoot
as the last audience member hurries to find her seat.

I stand center stage
wondering what play this is
and how I came to be standing here.

The curtain opens.
I am naked.
And I have not even seen my lines!
