Today, we build the stage
out of cinder blocks.
We’ll use a stick for her scepter
and a sheet for her cape.
Intertwined honey suckle vines
made into a crown.
 
Tomorrow, it will be my turn
to hold the scepter
and be crowned
queen of the day...
I will walk around the yard
as if it is my own kingdom
and wear my cape
like the Queen of England...
 
Acclaimed Pageantry,
sometimes a Play,
in the parts of our vicinity,
our judges and audiences at bay...
 
Snippets of memories shared
with a long-time characters in our Play...
Oh how refreshing to escape
mundane chores of the day!
