The Show

Under sober lamps
maroon leather
now pale from sweat
and
the shuffling of sober bodies
who
smeared their faces
in
response to a defiling twitch,
push through the haze
with
struggling lids
and applaud
with
empty stomachs.
Outside,
a man talks tickets
and rips the re-taped stubs…
The show was always better drunk
but i don’t advise giving a standing ovation that way.
