envision the future
picture the tabloids
stolen polaroids
of your latest
exploits

the girls and the boys
in lines buying their toys
see headlines of your life
that they hate but
enjoy

avoid a void

where is this life that
we think we’re missing
remissing the present
in the past
reminiscing

sugarcoat what once was
gloating at what could be
finding the now so
droll and off
putting

avoid a void

snapshots the cameras
absence grows darker
celebrity already
dreading mile
markers

slowly take off your
shades with this horror
that no one is happy
in this shadowed
corridor
