Why I Always Sing “The Killing Moon” Instead

Why I Always Sing “The Killing Moon” Instead

I’ve been meaning to sing
“Bring On The Dancing Horses”
at karaoke
but I keep putting it off

Maybe because it’s the kind of song
that sounds best when it’s played over end credits,
and I worry that if I start singing

“First I’m gonna make it
Then I’m gonna break it
Till it falls apart”

The lights will slowly fade out
and
I’ll see a scrolling wall of text
superimposed across the karaoke bar
signaling that my two and a half hours
of screen time is over
and
I am not eager to find out
what’s going to be screening
after this

Although
on the bright side
if I squint my eyes
and read the credits
at least I’ll finally get to see
who’s been playing me this whole time
