before the show

before the show

 

we had done this thousands of times before

on the road

basements

backyards

and garages

 

it was our first big break

 

we always felt the same

those nerves

antsy feet

jittery hands

pacing

puffed out sighs

 

our drummer was the lucky one

practicing with this sticks

against everything

on his knee if he was desperate

 

the walls here have had history written on them

literally

 

thought about leaving our mark

 

saw bands i grew up listening to

was searching for my favorite

bass player found his

 

our guitarist found a good spot

next to the door

wide open

barren

signed no one here knows us

but we’re going to rock it

 

we huddled

prayed

got hyped

and ran onto the stage to a silent crowd

made a few fans that night

 

we had more fun than they did
