Cutting Floor

Many months along on this journey

Track switched derailment

Bizarre interminable life detour

Her role remains elusive.

Selected scenes

Audaciously authored

She writes her own script

Declares herself Switzerland

(Impoverished, chocolate and Alps-free version)

Neutral on block wars

Alpha through Omega.

Other scenes, starring

Herself as stringed-puppet

Jerked, directionless

Paraded, manacled, upon spotlit stage

Defensless, awaiting

Hail of heckling

Hurled rotten tomatoes

Eyes clamped tightly

She clicks ruby-red slippers

Devasted, opens eyes

Joyous homecoming

Lies rejected on cutting room floor.
