pass by my window

young women

pass by my window

sleek as well fed seals

full make up for the world

phones in their hands

checking checking

for the new

for?

their skinny boys

scamper alongside

just slightly behind

mouths agape

eyes wide open

seeming scared

for what

is to come

unhappy with where they are

looking for something to happen

fame fortunes fifteen minutes of

& I wise in my tower

could if asked prophesy

thankfully they will not

for nobody needs a fortune teller

speaks of the truth

only 1 in a ten thousand

gets to be a true

legend
