Show Poem: Stop Day: May 8, 2014 @ The Replay Lounge (Lawrence, KS)

Stop Day

So this is the end.
It’s over.
I really can’t believe it.
It really is through.
Remember when we were just starting
And knew just what to do?
We didn’t have to think.
We just got in line and did the next thing.
Said the next words.
The words you are supposed to say right after you decide to start talking.
It was so easy then.
It all made sense.
At least at the beginning.
But now it’s over.
I guess it’s time to have a beer.
That’s what you do when it’s over right?
Have a seat.  (?)
Relax. (?)
Watch some TV. (?)
Take some time off.  (?)
Until it’s time to start again.
Unless we’re gonna start something by drinking beer and relaxing?
We could do that couldn’t we?
Is it actually possible to start something by stopping?
You know what?
I think it is.
Let’s stop starting and start stopping.
Let’s try.
And wherever this goes.
There’s gonna be love there right?
Don’t forget the love.
There must be love
