  • DREAMS FADE LESS


    Dreams
    don't die easy
    throughout Hollywood.
    there's no decency in death,
    no POV
    or great ceremony here,
    just the hallucination
    when the dream
    exceeds the dreamer.

    the
    car gets older,
    but it gets kept up
    and also painted
    every so often,
    hiding age
    until
    it becomes a classic

    like
    the dreamer.

    the
    tummy
    gets tucked,
    wrinkles get lifted,
    hair is dyed
    and teeth replaced.
    even the cancer is tolerated
    so the insurance coverage co-pays
    can be applied
    to more important things
    like new implants,
    bolstering up the same
    desperate dream
    only to be shared
    more and more

    with
    less and less

    until
    it's over.
