Queen of the Stage

Each short month she rehearses her parts,

slips silently on at the back, an

ingénue, all sharp edges and

shy determination, already

eye-catching, getting

bigger parts each night, more

admirers, men throwing

screwed-up poetry, women their

red garters, until she

so dominates the stage the other

cast members might as well

not show up, and even in

decline she still plays her

Grande Dame roles, upstaging

greater players but somehow

unresented as she slips behind the

dark curtain of rebirth.
