The Warmup Act

She needs a stand-in,
a soft hand to hold whilst she
awaits the real show

coming by to snap her
up outta the small front row
left to my same role

to crow over phones
I'm frustrated but choose calm
boiling seas are hot

I no longer want
to be cooked under pressure
so I do one thing

a soothing measure,
mind my business and leave her
to her dark pleasures.
