UPSTAGED!

Standard

My sex appeal is nurtured.
The work is not condensed to digest
in real life.

Superb actor apply within
limits staged in familiar settings
Episodic, sit-com, mini-series
promotional clips – the act
beats living disappointing rehearsals.

Turn up wine bottles
before I light candles or place the
glasses near flowers (I bought myself).
And believe that what I do for you
Is more than what I do…

Ignored ambience, stolen credits,
suppressed applause.
How would I act with a man who sees
the same movie?
