YOU'RE NO FUN ANYMORE
(7/27/15)


he looks
about him
and sees
only a show

people
existing
upon stages
of varying
degrees

everyone
attempting
to be a star
in their own
movie

no one
able
to look beyond
their scripts

he wonders
when life
lost
its reality

everywhere
that he goes
seems a meaningless
sham

make believe

he feels
a prisoner
in a play

he would like
to burn down
the entire theater

even though
he knows
that he wouldn't
be able to survive
for more
than a few days
without its
unholy structure
of subterfuge

at least
they would be
free days

she expects
him
to be entertaining

she wouldn't really
understand
his form
of entertainment

she has
no idea
how hard
he works
just to stay
boring
