A poem about the space between us



In response to a call-out from Heather at Director's Cut Theatre, I wrote this short poem for actors to perform. I'll upload any videos produced but for the time being, here's the poem.





Proxemics


We are all becoming experts

In proxemics.

This craft of the stage has become

Everybody’s business

The lovers who cannot kiss

The mothers who cannot hug their mothers

The brothers who cannot scrum down

In the space between us all

Something is amiss.

This

This air

This fourth wall

This

Missing link

Between us all.
