Acting Lessons from Minor Characters

If you play the Apothecary, say,
That guy in Romeo and Juliet
Who sells the poison in Act V, Scene I,
You're here and gone with half a sonnet's worth
Of words to tell one human soul's full truth.
And even if you play a major role,
You have no less a stake in any line.
