EMOTION IMMOLATION
(2/22/14)


we're
just not satisfied
with simple
facts

simple
events

we want
a melt down

a break down

a total
collapse
of character
that we may
witness
in order
to believe
that we've been
truly
informed

truly
entertained

blood
would be
better
but we'll settle
for tears

profanities

some
extreme indication
of depression
or angst

joyous cries
and exuberance
are acceptable
if no negative
expressions
are to be had

but we
would rather
see them
down

prostrate
in misery

so that
despite
their celebrity
we could possibly
feel
just a bit
equal

they
are only
human too
after all

it feels
good
to see them
suffer
with the rest
of us
