drama, like sports. . .

clarity of revelation is part of what draws us to sports,
for the ball goes in the basket, or it doesn’t,
will and want yield to what is, and “is” is clear,
so unlike the nebulous ambivalence of so much of our days
when we guess and approximate our paths through the woods,

drama can be like sports
for the audience tells you what you think you feel,
that what you present works,

just as success in sports can feel true
so can success in drama,

the process needs a team
and each can feel the product rise with each and every effort,

when all is right
there is clarity for the actor
and the worth revealed feels sure.
