Poem: An Electromagnetic Bell in the Theatre (please comment)

An electromagnetic bell rings:

-

in the ornate

nearly empty auditorium,

-

in the bar

where patrons perform set pieces,

-

in the cloak room

where fine furs hang patiently,

-

and dressing rooms

where nervous actors wait.

-

It rings again,

a final call.

-

The ringing stops.

The clapper’s silent

oscillations die.
