Rock Star

Woke up covered
In last night's
Excessive behavior
Remembering little
Of the hours before
Not overly troubled
By the fact
I came close to never
Opening my eyes
At all

Just a little curious
As to how long
It might have taken
To find my body
How few phone calls
Left unanswered
Whether anybody
Would have known
To scatter my ashes
Across a particular
Mountain lake

How many would attend
The funeral
Who would cry
And if the situation
Would be dismissed
As an accident
Or suicide

Pouring another drink
I feel a little cheated
For having missed
My fifteen minutes
