Performance

March 22, 2020

the dancer gliding across the floor
the athlete in the air
the businessman pens his career
the plane overpowers gravity
the snooker player plays the white ball
like an instrument
like how the bassist picks his fingers
across the strings
and we watch these things happen
right in front of our eyes and
by golly, it’s impressive,
way more impressive than the writer,
goddamnit, we never even see that
fuck anymore.
