Life Rehearsals



The bright stage lights and music have all faded away.

The fabulous queen places her lashes on the vanity tray.

She feels accomplished in her dressing room painted teal blue,

Removing satin and feathers; revealing her Navy days tattoo.


She shocked and entertained in this glamorous cabaret.

Patrons still parleying while waiting for the valet;

She walks by them undetected, hearing them talk about her debut.

The word will spread like a wildfire of this marvelous revue.


The next day she waits tables serving sandwiches and sorbet,

To patrons of a more conservative nature in a little café.

She’s dreamed how last night would feel and followed it through,

With courage and many rehearsals, it had finally come true.


A divine diva beautifully entertaining in every way;

She’s having her cake, and the topping, too.
