A 10 out of 12:
"Here is..." Stand By LX80
"...for thy pains." Hold please!

Actors wandering
We can see you from waist down
Can't you find your light?

I know there's more tech tension out there waiting to blossom into a perfect, succint flower of poesy...

Hot plastic droplets
Rain down like cherry blossoms.
No gel frames, used gaff.

Loud squealing sound
ev'ry time the lead actor
moves down of speakers.

Crew of nine interns,
Not a single one of them
Can walk quietly.

Under blue shift light
Cheap K-mart black glows softly
Red like autumn leaves.

Shift in chair, legs pinch...
should have taken bathroom break
on last union 10.

Music rehearsal
today. Nothing stands between
me and the Xerox!

Sixteen black footprints
from shop through lobby to door.
House manager cries.

Seventh chorus girl
from left throws a diva fit,
name wrong in program.

Rehearsal ended.
Lights out, ghost light placed, doors locked.
Hello, bartender!

Brava I say! Cheers!
A masterpiece of poesy
Well writ, this ballad.

"What the &$%! is it?",
The flustered actor yells out.
What happened to "Line."

One-off, bus and truck
Can't get sound to work on time
Three to go this week

Thirteen hours truck
Stuck in traffic pouring rain
Fall down stairs hurt knee

Thirteen hours three
people in twenty-six foot
truck in New Jersey
