Performative Arts
Life has always been performance
Everybody knows this (to degrees we do)
But what still perplexes
Is the composition of audience

Is Audience necessary
Can we be our own
What is not performance
Who is not audience

Existence has always been performance
Mine being the most (boring and ignored)
Which is fine since I am audience
Which is not since you are missing the show

Performance is a function
Of locus of audience
Both actor and other
Only to self-amuse


Don Day 2

Everything's Going to be Everything

Make Take
If I’m not making
I’m most certainly taking
And the other way ‘round

One and done
Tell me when it can be over
I have had my hey days

If I’m not making it
I’ll definitely be taking it
Vice versa here as well

I’ve built it all up
Someone will tear it all down
No donkeys, no, no towns

If I couldn’t make it
I surely had to take it
Flipping that works

This life is short
And getting shorter
Maybe this is the best
