Stagefright

curtain, shredded
even before the play starts!
the actors
fumble for words,
cloth gets twisted in sweaty palms –
no time to prepare.
tossed on stage,
dumped,
like disposing of garbage –
naked to judging eyes.

vulnerability displayed,
no time to seek refuge in a jester’s cap –
Act I begins…
leaves a trail of
anxiety and sour sweat
to feast upon.
