NaPoWriMo #26

talent show preparation

Four students are wrapping
pale blue streamers around
imposing pillars, weaving color
around stark whiteness. Several
others are huddled
backstage, calling out names
and continually making marks
on official-looking clipboards. A
feeling of anticipation and
general panic hovers anxiously
over their heads

(like storm clouds
on the morning of a big game)

the building filled with
a sense of fullness.
