Off Book

I out-sourced
my dreams
at age fourteen

I was wise
for my years
or just doomed…

I prefer
to think
the former
but willing
to split
the difference
as any self-respecting
odds player
would

but die-cast
a random casting
call and
all actors play
to type
and certain
early curtain
for any character
that goes
off script
———————

*Off Book
The term for the stage when the performer has his or her lines memorized
