Salt and pepper & a wine list
Unlikely props for this moment of inspiration.
The strident tones of a breakfast DJ seem somehow not to fit.
Pieces of history
Litter the walls.
I think back to other times
Same setting, different moments.
A multitude of scenes set on the same stage.
As though the stagehands have tired of set-changing
And bunked off for a quiet smoke.
Standing outside the stage-door,
Waiting for the final ovation.
