The Caribbean Writer

Non Star

John M. Figueroa


When heroine and hero come
on stage the playwright sends
me packing. I get lost


I am the frost on the cake
not the icing. I entice


in early action, drop a name
or two to set important people
talking. The critics find


my mind and character
underdeveloped. Perhaps a trace


of elements no longer
