walking down the red carpet
my soles are getting drenched
the taste of blood is on my lips
I don’t know whose blood it is
I almost fainted when I heard the news

growing thin in the throne room
spooning soup with a rusty fork
punished gently between hooks
and chains and butcher knifes
I almost fainted when I heard the news

without pleasure we touch our souvenirs
our talk is crowded with trap doors and walls
please, please
stop embarrassing me

a member of the cast and of the audience
at the same time
leading the attack and holding the defense
at the same time
how could I be surprised or moved
why should I applaud

when the rain begins to rise
from the caverns of these eyes
we begin to realize
life’s a little bit too wild
