Histrionics (Why I Hate Selfies Pt. 2)

by October 19, 2022 0 comments

I
Suicidal cheerleaders
walk their daddies home from jail
shoot rabbits
but don’t boil them.

II
All the world’s a stage
but most scroll in the audience
and only the scariest smiles
extemporize.

III
Emotion is the soundtrack
to existence.
Take care you’ll still look
human
when the music stops.

– C E Hoffman
