words by Kevin Eberhardt, photographs by Richard Byerley

  

We're too animated for our own good

But we're addicted / predictably

Categorized / typecast in this version

Of a life we've created

 

Enamored of ourselves

Of the roles we play / but

  

Only on the weekends / usually /

During the week we're way too normal

Too tired / we get up / go to work

Come home / watch TV / go to bed

 

But on weekends we're energized

We rock and roll / we twist and shout

We drink and dance and fall in love

All over again / and again

 

The week-end remembers what

The week-day beguiles us to forget
