The theatre opens

The theatre opens

and the automatic customers

file in

there is a ruffle and crunch

of excitement in the air

the feature today

includes a passionate exchange

between the dead people

their batteries are charged

they look like real humans

they breathe and talk

no one can see where they plug in

every night

they’ve been doing it for years

they’re good at it
