The empty space is ours to fill.
It exists in a constant suspension
of waiting
until we come to play.
Clumsy as we are,
we manage to stumble upon
sublime moments of humanity,
interspersed with laughter
and bathroom breaks.
Twenty minutes before rehearsal starts
the room starts to hum,
faintly at first,
and then the hum becomes a dull roar,
soon the space is shaking
with the anticipation
of truths to come
and the ecstasy
of the actors
who will
come
and
fill
it.
