My Audition

Okay, watch this amazing

act of duplicity and awe

be sure to applaud at the right time

stand up and clap and hoot and stomp

keep your eyes on me, lovers

of despair and disconnect, you native

speakers. I am draped in wife-beaters

and dancing in the aisles, in the ashes

raise your voice in shouts of adore

me, let me shake that ass and win

the big role, the star role;

surprise me with pomp.

I want a thousand cheerleaders and you

at my grave.
