Don’t you judge me! I’m not on stage,
the band is on stage, so watch them
and let me do as I will. It’s fine
that your idea of fun is screaming lyrics,
shaking your ass, fingers on the stage edge,
the world’s best fans all waving their hands,
but I don’t want to be a groupie
or an audience participant. I don’t want
the attention. I don’t want
to clap my hands in time to the beat
or sing call and answer; it all just feels forced.
I don’t want to fake this orgasm.
This is directed at no one in particular. Seriously.
