Hidden Reality Show

No one knows, even dreams, what stories

have unfolded in these now empty rooms,

passions they have witnessed and secrets

forever buried within.

Comedies, dramas and tragedies, it looks

like a Broadway season, although staged

only for walls displaying their pictures,

mute and discreet spectators.

Unlike professional actors and actresses,

these ones made a point of anonymity, but

should be applauded, for they presented

their roles live, without usual rehearsals.

With magnificence, grace and proficiency,

they played so great a part, sleepless,

day after day, as well indeed, as any of us.
