Victoria Wood
Haunting the shadows,
     A shimmer of a man.
     The rumour in the dressing room
Keeping understudies worried.

Two trickles reveal mastery,
     reprogrammed, re-positioned,
     mannequins of passion,
Modelling automatons.

And, in long strokes of ecstasy
     the Golems have hooved feet.
     They report perfect motion
And steal the show.
