past as present

Let the past thrust itself on to the fore, dying
Fathers resurrect themselves as their children
Live out the past as present.

Let the myth dissemble into a tale with characters
Intelligently prancing about in plot circles wishing there
Was an escape hatch somewhere.

Let the now reek of the act, the stage immerse
Itself in the surge of applause, the actor remember
That only his will will save.
