Social invitations sing
of acceptance, delightful
opportunity to intermingle
for the hale, the rehearsed,
practiced in the choreography
of wardrobe appropriateness
disability cringes – NO!
contrived behaviour suitable
for enacting a script too stressing
compromised memory can’t learn
lines – intellect impaired, not
improv-friendly – RETREAT!
isolation a recurring sentence,
illness the jailor; except anxiety
has replaced physical challenge
only Will holds option’s key –
attire no excuse: tossed together
clothing apt gear for gatherings
pretense overcomes stage fright
a worthwhile role for any story,
especially one notably improved.
