That One Time...

who rehearses what to say
for the impossible day
they meet their heroes?
(I don't)

irritatingly tied
there's nothing poetic about
being starstruck
just a bunch of screaming-
disbelieving-
holy-fuck

lately I haven't been complaining
but there was more Magic in the Lake
than I realized
realize
I have words for most
but last night I could only find knots in my throat
who rehearses what to say
for the impossible day
they meet their heroes?
(I sure as hell don't)
