karaoke night

your answers so smooth
your questions so rough

like this bad karaoke singer
you leave me wordless

mouthing lyrics to an
everchanging tune

a top ten hit
you haunt my head.

    Can the barfly hear inside my room? I am guilty of bad karaoke singing, too. 😉
    Rough and smooth…both flaunt their appeal.

      The barfly is everywhere, Jane… (cue sinister music and maniacal laughter)

        I’ve been aware of its presence for over 2 years now, Joseph. It sees what it wants to see, whether accurately or not. A simple creature, with only as much power as a hidden camera. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

    *tout — gee, I’m just full of errors today.
