If I came to your shows would you read my stories,
if I bought your art would you buy my chapbook?
If I scratched your back
would you step out of your world
and scratch mine?
Are we all just shoving money between each other
so we can spend it to buy more product
to sell our friends,
or do some of us believe that we’re successful
if we can let all of our friends inside
Do we actually think our shit is worth the money
or do we just not wanna work as hard no more?
And who’s to say which one of us has talent
when we’re all just such good bosom-buddy pals?
I guess we all need eyes and ears to feed us,
but I don’t really mind, not really-
my friends don’t read or listen
because I don’t bother going to their shows.
