Friday Night







Friday Night

The bright lights shine
Yet there is darkness.
Cheering and screaming
Yet there is silence.
Silence yet my heart has rhythm.
The rhythm of the drum taps.
Command shouted,
Body automatic;
Left, right, left, right.
Am I in step?
Did I stop in the right spot?
Halt.
Heart still pounding.
Music.
Play! Play with passion!
On the toes!
Don't forget!
Push until there's nothing left,
Then continue to push some more.
Breathe and keep going.
Silence.
Remember your notes.
Breathe.
Silence.
Play your solo.
Don't mess up.
Last note.
Applause.
