Drama’s Weird

In the scene, people
Sit around talking.
Don’t let it get lax.

Don’t let it get real.
It’s your first language,
The idle chit-chat.

You’re only not bored
If you get to talk,
If the topic’s you,

If you’ve got the hots
For someone talking.
The audience can’t

Get to talk and aren’t
Likely the topic
Of talk in the scene—

Keep those characters
Interesting. Keep

Your invisible
Future audience
Fully mesmerized.

In the scene, people
Sit around talking,
Beautifully weird.
