Dead Celebrity

Heroes don’t last forever

Free Verse ReVolution

Dead celebrity won the
city of my soul.

Her hold more
Marilyn than most,

mostly

I just feel
she’s gone.

A thousand times
drawn, thousand more
romanticized.

Dead celebrity benign as
the rhinestone around
her collar,
on reality’s
altar made me want to
follow her until I’d caught
up and

shipped her home.

But there’s no
upside to whatever
way she dies.

There’s no point
to being famous if all
your loneliness becomes

known.

Besides, we’re all
getting too old to
roll the die

and walk

away.
