sitting under an striped umbrella by the pool
i wonder why i am sitting there in the very first place †
then about the point in wondering [if any] †
 
afterwards †i blink †
try to yawn audibly and fail†
chew on the bland gum †
 
then i †
try to burp †
move my shades [by puckering my nose] †
stop breathing for some time †
raise my head †
try to stare at the sun †
squint hard †
start to move my legs sideways [slow at first and then with a viciousness] †
whimper [in a moment of induced whim] †
let a trickle of iced coffee froth run down my chin †
shudder violently †
 
and
 †
watch a sea of humanity †
pour in my direction †
men women children †
 
the women gush concern †
the men show interest
and the children †
well they just smile †
and look across †
[or probably thru me] †
 
with closed eyes i try
to imagine all these unknown faces [a whole set of expressions] †
while the stage light keeps getting brighter †
than the midday sun †
 
until that's all i see †
with my airtight eyes †
 
hands hold grope touch caress †
whispers words sounds seep in †
 
a smirk gets born †
[so much for throwing away †
the box of Ritaline] †
welcome to the show †
 
i am the guinea pig †
i am today's entertainment †
and i am
the puppet master †
 
i am everything
nothing †

i am your whore †
so come fuck me †
with your eyes and hands †
with the love and the concern †
with your borderline desperation †
then ejaculate
your lack of
indifference †
your blobs of
belief [in the flawed act of my staged death] †
 
later
all of us
can go home †
happier
than
before
