Once Upon-A-Time, Tomorrow

I like that I closed the show,

that I am your last memory

of the evening,

the ghost of my performance,

lingering as you seek your sleep.

The absence of ignorance, for me,

shows I know the host

was leaving me until last

to leave you with a lasting

impression. The digestion

of free-form, the audience

understands that their applause

demands, one day,

I shall once again – perform.
