My Show at the Whiskey a Go Go on the 26th of August 2003 (Free verse) by Jeremi B. Handrinos
Precognition: Siblings are both there. Little sister looks gorgeous as usual. Baby brother is cackling on heroin and pointing at some chick he wants to fuck, and more than likely will if he doesn't buy cocaine and go limp first. Nadine, my love, my Saint helps load and unload everything, gets my strings, my gear positioned, my drinks, greets everyone never complains (unless I leave with my bros.) and basically manages my retarded over acted existence down to the second. I have trained her well. Like I taught Angie. And Michelle. But I ruined that. But I think deep down inside, they both always knew I was meant for a different life, and they are proud of me. Neither, of my parents are there. As usual. Who cares. I obviously do, if I brought it up. Rufus Wainwright & Cherry Vanilla, are there, and Rufus looks HOT! Bruno’s there, Wes from Puddle of Mud Dog-town and Z boys are in the house VENICE! VENICE! VENICE! "Cigarettes an Chocolate milk" (I should cover that) But tonight I'm playing: 1. Cowboy Polaroid 2. Zombie Love 3. At the Circle K 4. Break Down 5. Mystery instrumental 6. Crypt-ionic Rosetta Groan 7. Holy Toledo, is that your Mom? 8. Fuck off 9. Nights in White Satin 10. Story of my life 11. Cereal killer Blues. ENCORE: House of the rising sun Aka house of the wobbly ass wagon. Super Encore, The Crutchling (Western style) straight into Angels & dinosaurs. The show is a smashing success. I get signed the next day. I never have to come on Poemranker again. Unless, I need to find my keys.

Do you really know Rufus Wainwright? I saw him once on "Later with Jools Holland" on BBC 2. Playing "Foolish Love". Quite good.

an advert disguised as a poem.
Bit like swedens eurovision entry which claimed to be a song, when it was an instrumental with some guy talking at the beginning.

anyway this 'poem' is sweet as pie and dark. I like it.

When you are famous will your name be j handrinos?

It was good. Well good enough to get asked back, but now I know how Buckley felt as a one man with an amp. People just have very short attention spans unless you're really cramming it up their asses at eleven. I need to put together a really good band especially in the rhythm area. A strong three piece like the toadies or other good three piece bands we wont mention (Nirvanaaaaaaa). Or, a five piece with a lead guitarist and a good organ player. Who knows... I had fun, and I got a B plus on the write up so, as the saying goes, until the next show. Angels and dinosaurs and johny's jihad got the most as far as my songs go, in feedback from the audience, but it's because they're not intelligent enough to get the humor in songs like the crutchling or serial killer blues or at the circle k. Eventually, because I'm consistent and made of steel, someone will, and the machine will assimilate me, and then we'll have a good laugh, I suppose.
As far as how I felt about it? I thought it was the best live show I've played yet. but I'm young still, I think?.

Yes, as frequently as possible. You write shit mediocre poetry, and have a ridiculous user name. I would consider WopCherub? What do you think?
