at the bar

when you’re singing karaoke
the important thing is to put
your heart in it. either those
folks out there know the words
or they don’t; they didn’t come
for that, they came to see if you
could show them something
they themselves have felt before
but couldn’t name until right
this minute, maybe couldn’t even
remember until you closed your eyes
and just let the song do its thing.
they want an experience, they want
to know all those old memories still
mean something, can still carry a charge.
i want it too, we all do. and you’re the one
standing up there looking cool. so go for it.
