Flick: ON

Lights up.

No need to hide,

we're all out in the open.

The stage is set, and

while we're walking on eggshells,

it's calm. Relax.

Flick: OFF

Lights down.

Go to the corner,

retreat into the darkness.

The shadows shield you if you

play it right without cringing.

Don't panic.

--

Flicker.

Trouble.

Now is the unknown,

between the lights and the dark.

It's time to fake it, whether

it goes on or off. Grin, but they'll

never guess the truth.
