He waits in the wings,

Quietly sitting just a few seats away,

Observing, absorbing, patience redefined.


The more at peace you are,

The greater his tenacity.

Willing to appear invisible for years at a time.


Then suddenly an opening appears in the movie,

Something smothered in desire, old longings, past deeds,

And remembrances.


Time to try again.
