Apartment #413:
ordinary surroundings
are my stage

by Carol Nelson

               ACT 1

               SCENE 1

               My own room,

               With whitish walls and window,

               Are the setting.

               Seven plants line the sill.

               Two tall, leafy ficus: curtains.

               Left: a narrow bed,

               Right: worktable.. space.

               Center: A loud, red comfy chair confronts

               Stiff, green, wooden rocker.

               Sunlight takes the stage at 10:30, promptly.

               Singular cat crosses the imagined footlights.
