there’s tension in the muscles but it’s not from overuse
and i think the world is often wrong about stars.

platinum albums are a gateway but
they don’t open up to heaven;
the starlet smirks during interviews
but snorts the good stuff backstage.

we used to think we were everything,
that all of creation spun to please us
and when you find that you’re the pawn and not the king
you realize you aren’t a star.

the cosmos aren’t wowed by glitter,
the universe doesn’t bow down to its organs.
we burn, we blaze, and yet
we are hardly of interest at all.
