Our stars today

We watch them die
then watch them eat themselves alive
we watch them soar
rip them apart forevermore
then see them twitch
watch them eat their fingertips
we see them mimic
create themselves within our image
we watch them die
puppets thought gods
we’ve seen them cry
watched them fall from in the sky
they hit the ground
they swallowed hard and then they found
we watch them die
lift them up to say goodbye
we want to see
abused by beautiful tragedy
so then they make
a play about their slow decay
and we will watch
and they will rot beneath the stage
