Audience (poem)

Recognition realization reformation invigoration.
Applause, laughter… oohs and awes.
They are compelled to stimulation…
Want performance without pause…

The famed glory: an edifice of interest.
That same story simply said in this:

If they love you, will you love you more?
Without that thumb, your work a bore?
How do you construct and define your score?
Musically? Arranged? Goals? Points? What for?

Net your notches and tally bags.
Relinquish records; tear up tags.

What they say doesn’t define you.
                          …and it never will.
Opinions dated forever through.
                       hold true, hold still.
