\"In today\'s society we sometimes forget to balance our hearts and our heads; this is the reason we stop laughing.\"

Week before
We get the packets,
Time to choose cuttings.
Monologue or duet?
She asks me to go with her.
Preparing, practicing, performing.
We’re ready.
Called to the stage,
The lights come up.
Fear and anxiety melt
Under the 3000 watt lights,
I’m in the scene.
It ends too quickly,
I get pulled back into reality,
I feel the sensation
Of disbelief in my surroundings
So common to ending a scene.
Now, it’s time to wait.
