it's simple, really, much easier than a two or three act

and considerably easier than a one-act or a ten-minute play

it's not a big production requiring weeks of rehearsal

or props to find in the dark or an x as mark to stand upon

so that the light can at last find you in mid-soliloquy

no set crafted in passionate hues or foreboding levels

no trap doors to suddenly appear or whisk you away

no big dance numbers or jugglers or extras milling about

no orchestra or audience roaring a standing ovation

it's so very simple, it's not complicated, not in the least

I'm sorry
