Stage

Standard

Gathered beneath
a tick-tock sky
Strangers by name,
friends on the street

Blue in the face,
stiff upper lip
Cobblestone seats,
warm with the sun

Evening show
takes center stage
The players speak
unwritten lines

Inspiration: Covent Garden is often the stage for street performers and is always full of people. Between performances and people watching, there’s never a dull moment.
