and for some reason you’re back stage,
you’ll see well dressed big burly men in reflective glasses.
even indoors. even in the darkness of backstage. even at night.
and when you’re doing something normal like looking at lady gagas white piano
one of them might say to you, can we get a little space please.
and you’ll back up and you’ll hear and then see 3-4 more burley men walking with purpose
and then the vice president of the united states
who will turn to you and see that you are filming
and say, hi guy.
and behind him will be 3-4 more men
one of them carrying a small bag, inside is something square.
a toaster? does the vp enjoy special toast?
an extremely thick book?
two boxes of air jordans?
or, is it a telephone that cannot get hacked
that goes straight to wherever the president is?
or is that really The Button? is The Button actually a box?
if something happens to the president,
is it important for the VP to be able to push the button in a split second?
these are the things that i think about when i see things.
which is why i should probably get some rest now that our show has aired.
