Can Hear Them



        Inside her dressing room Gypsy reclines on a chaise longue and holds a glass of brandy in shaking hands. The smoky sweet scent of knockwurst drifts over from her hot plate, but her appetite is gone. She can hear them, the dull thrum of their expectations, the drumbeat chants her name.
