Applause

Between scene changes, when the lights go down

And the crowd claps politely,

I do not think the claps belong only to the actors.

The claps belong to the sound crew getting the mics to work.

They belong to the light crew for hitting their marks perfectly.

They belong to the stage crew who are hurrying to change the set.

They belong to all the forgotten members who make the magic possible.
