on celebrity…


The acrid cult
Of so-called celebrity
Filled with selfish, self-contained slackness
Staring into the lights and magazines
And living in that single goldfish bowl
Of demonic madness
Where the eyes
Don’t cross the tease
Just swept up, like dust mites
In a whirlwind
Of vapid and vacuous ventrilloquism
Lapped up by the masses
In what passes
For entertainment
