Speed Dating

Speed dating

are mini stages

and watch closely

for the plot.

The actors

scramble between lines

to show each rise of hope

and fall of yearning.

Deceit tucks behind

the curtain words

while hero bravado glistens 

in each three minute story

Truth and lies

rock back and forth

with each wobble of the tables.

In the end,

a climatic scribble

pulls the cast completely center stage

for the applause of an act

which has the audience

working arm in arm.
