A love in verse

Away on Tour

Performed by

Darkness is tumbling from the flies

And fills the gloomy wings

Your backstage lover sits and sighs

Remembering many things

The thousand hours we’re apart

The few we are together

Loneliness – your lover’s heart

Almost beyond its tether

The leading actor loud on stage

Impresses in his part

I do mine for a weekly wage

And not for love of art


Doing Well

When I think of the parts I don’t play.

The minuscule oeuvre of my writing career

I look at you...


There’s all the plays I never wrote

And all the parts I didn’t play

No screenplays either I must say...
