by Keith Burton

set the stage

cue the applause

the characters dance

around their flaws

bite your nails

with hunger and hope

you’ll see them trip

and swallow whole

their poisoned fate

they were born to eat

that’s tragedy, baby

blame the greeks

while you remain

on luxury seating

starved for drama

dying for feeling

so long as it doesn’t

touch you where you sleep
