I know Richard Yates said it in A Natural Girl
but everyone is an actor
playing roles
in the big Life production
directed by noone
except cruelty
and everyone is acting their part right now
Iím acting at writing a poem
youíre acting at reading one

Hi Bogdan! You are so right! We all act our roles; different ones for different situations. Welcome to WW.

I like the last two lines, completely killer! Short, succinct and true. This could be expanded to a fuller monologue piece of poetry, performance if you will. I can sense real venom waiting to be spat.
