Stage Light

The light on the stage
lights up the performer brilliantly
but does not allow that performer
to see the document
she is supposed to be reading

This must be some sort of metaphor
for the tragedy of sentience
or the destiny of humankind
or the irony of the social and cultural structure of the Western world
or the proper way to prepare fish

Let us shine the light of obscurity
on the performer of ineptitude
and create a situation
that drags us kicking and screaming
towards profundity
