Stardom

STARDOM


Maybe we'll find it:

that one choice

that one
UMMMMPH
of a choice

that clear
White-to-Black

"I will go THIS WAY!"

And the invisible
crowd roars

and some beautiful
woman or man
hands you
the award

Forgotten friends
and neighbors
appearing
out of
nowhere

"Ya know,
I always thought they would make it...
Just somethin' about them."


The yearning
for stardom

is the memory
of the stardust
we came from

a faint
remembering
of being a light
that could be seen
all the way
across the
cosmos

But look at us now!

Strange bodied creatures

Sticky and awkward

so specific

with a name

and strong political views

wandering a planet

searching for something...

soft and tender
diffused light

that can now be held

by another's
yielding
skin
