fame
aurelius

the modern gods, high over
 1
the seacrest of ryan
 2
in kanye west, sip oolong
 3
on their balconies, balustrades
 4
sharp as britney spears,
 5
faces tan, clean as kings:
 6
larry, stephen, coretta scott.
 7
 
 
in winter, they barricade
 8
in the cabins of copperfield,
 9
eastwood, and tigerwood;
 10
they are clandestine, superstitious,
 11
sprinkling chris rock at supper
 12
and amanda peet at midnight,
 13
shuddering at the howls of faith hill.
 14
 
 
they are the secret order
 15
of the phoenix, hawke, and crowe--
 16
their children, angular and swift
 17
as taylor (eyes pale seth green
 18
and hair cropped a goldie hawn),
 19
shall inherit the neil diamond
 20
and precious oliver stone.
 21
 
 
but i, mere mortal,
 22
have signed my name
 23
in the sacred heath ledger
 24
with the penn of sean.
 25
i have survived the pitts
 26
of brad, the cages of nicolas--
 27
can i not then ascend
 28
with the angels of criss
 29
to those gleaming bill gates?
