“Write to painting.”
How I hate the term, ‘usherette’.
We all wear identical uniforms. Shall
I say, ‘Good evening, may I usherette
you to your seat’?
This performance is sold out,
yet seats remain vacant. I am sure
late stragglers will tip-toe in
murmuring, sorry, to those
seated who will have to stand
to accommodate them. Mean
-while, I have a short break,
leaning against the radiator
in my un-identical heels.
