Lying on The Strip

Glamor

Glitz

Fortune

and Fame

The machine turns and spits out another name.

Take it and sell

your soul to the Gods

For recognition and a life

of stars and shame.

Lights

Camera

Cheers

Pop!

Suck it all down while you’re at the top

for

It won’t last long,

or be remembered.

Any and all success

is and never was

Yours.

Take that drag,

shoot another.

The fiery burns

from the inside out.

Dark rings

surround your eyes

and

painted Faces

dance in smokey lies.

Not one person Real.

No skin exposed warm to the

Touch.

The surface a rubber mask

covering up

the Sad inky darkness

beneath.
