The Boy Actors
She held her part,
(Though knew the lines by heart)
But the others hovering in the wings
Obscured sure things.
She let a page fall (no hurt)
To pleach her skirt.
Truly the part made her head whirl
To act-a-girl act-a-boy act-a-girl.
Colleen Thibaudeau, 1945
“The Boy Actors”, written during Thibaudeau’s university days, appeared in Alphabet, Issue 1, 1960 under the pseudonym M. Morris.
