Pretending

If I were in a band
I’d be screaming out
to the dark rooms
where the smoke
once made the atmosphere.
I’d call out for a chance,
make a game of things,
to have a little fun
while the critics dance
and promise
to remember my name.
I could list
all the things I’d be,
but then there’d be
nothing left but plans
and honesty cripples me
into knowing
that all this shit
is all just shit anyways.
