Pretend you belong

Drink whiskey until a haze
glides over your body.
Spin as house music stomps on
whisper-shouts exchanged.
Numb the loneliness
that suffocates in a sea of people.
Pretend you belong in
this perfectly artificial town.
Ignore the way its inhabitants
expertly engineer interest.
Get discarded when you’re deemed useless
in an endless quest to make it.
