acting for alma

alma liked to act a scene
she called the world her stage
she did not need a curtain
or an audience to engage

in fact, her favorite audience
consisted of herself
she'd act a scene where she was tall
and watch it like an elf

she'd act like she was angry
and she really would get scared
the audience inside her
threw her flowers when it cared

her favorite critic was herself
she'd write in-depth reviews
and when the act was boring
she herself would take a snooze

she worked for months and then performed
her greatest work of drama
and who applauded at the end?
an audience of alma
