Casting Call

an unlikely prospect in the leading role

you’ve been typecast many times

a raw talent you do not see

you could be the leading man

in your own sweeping epic adventure


I’m not one in front of camera’s gaze

not even one you would consider

as chorus or supporting cast

no, you find me behind the scenes

running for coffee, or pinning a dress


yet I still read the scripts

and watch the starlets who flow

through the studio’s doors

and into the leading man’s arms

some would call me his girl Friday

rarely do they notice the wardrobe girl

when listening to the heart’s casting call.
