It’s Like Singing In The Shower This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Anxiety.
Trembling hands fumble the microphone.
Just pretend everyone is naked, they say.

Step into a sprinkle
of shouts,
cheers shower
as multicolored halogen spotlights splash
on the faces of the band.
The cotton throat is quenched:
One,Two, Three, Four.
Fluid melodies steal the show
as lyrics make the getaway
to sudden silence.

Where did the glamour go?
And courage-inducing cameras?
The over-generous girls?
All slipped away,
down the drain,
gripping too tightly
on the bar of soap.
