Just a poem i wrote the other day..
Taking every precaution, I throw
my can under my clothes when
there’s a knock at the door and I try
hard not to breathe ‘cause I’m in deep
and I know it must be obvious as I hold
the doorframe for balance and as I look
the other way when I speak, but so openly
I laugh, I joke, I amaze myself at what a liar,
what an actor I am, forget all of those pretty faces
and throw me the Oscar for this performance,
And this is just the introduction, wait until
the opening night tonight, wait for the
performance awaiting you, awaiting
you on this stage. The world’s a stage
and I’m merely a drunk stumbling over it..
