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.
