Darkening Spotlights

Thanks to The Collingsworth Family for the photograph.

mindless endeavors and trivial pursuits
are what I’m all about
I couldn’t care less what the world thinks
I’m crude smooth and I love to entertain
with sex and hot bodies
money and fame
each day I grow less battered
by the barrage of image and sound
telling me who I am and what I buy
a never ending recording of myself
replayed throughout my generation
repeated over and over in different shades and colors
in varying dialects and regions
backdrops don’t matter
foregrounds don’t matter
props don’t matter
all that matters is the spotlight
and that it stays shining on me
