Glitter

The high lights that drive past

With shallow fame,

As the high rollers

And stretch limousines

Light your fading smile.

 

It’s been a while since you first stepped

In front of the cameras

In front of the lights,

Now you find the carpet

Is not quite as red

And the flashes

Are too bright for anyone’s eyes.

 

When the thread is pulled

To dissemble

What you thought was reality

Accumulates

when you find your trophy

Isn’t gold,

As glitter coats your hands.
