    screen slants
    felt red seats squeek
    springs missing

    tiny
    noble
    theatre

    balcony a
    four row
    jetty

    green and yellow
    splashes on
    the drawn velvet curtains

    shadow play
    lopsided
    on the tattered pearly
    screen

    lights fade
    flicker
    present

    the dance of light
    take hold
    majestic
