Oh dearest light lab, newly built by Bill,
because of you we do not have to go
so high up on the grid, no need to kill
our backs. We tested colors for the show
against a proper screen of white not black
and cinderblocks. Except the time we brought
an ETC and had it carried back
because our lights all lacked a gobo slot,
these little lights were fierce enough to cast
the room aglow with purples, pinks and blues,
to make a forest, fairy den, or vast
midsummer starry night with blended hues.
A stage, this multipurpose space transformed,
and we, with lights, as actors have performed.
