Camp

Please cover me in sequins
and feathers
and lipstick
and flashing lights
and songs

Oh God of gold spandex
and corny jokes
and breasts out the there
and brass trombones
and bad lighting

Please cover me in whipped cream
and platform shoes
and grease paint
and eyelashes with sparkles
and frilly underwear

Let the audience roar
and applaud
and sing along
and stomp their feet
and smile

Please cover me in roses
and laughter
and applause
and joy
and song

Give me a sign
and a promise
and a testament
and a rainbow
and a bridge

That today was
and tomorrow will be
something worth having a smile about

in spite of everything else
