In music
And in art
Writing, acting
We all play a part
Stars fill the heavens
And nearer ones
Fill our lives
With shared humanity
What makes them
Much more special
If that’s what they are?
Maybe it’s us…
Who would wish
To join them…
To also be a star
Or maybe just vanity…
We love the things
They show us
We worship them
Until they fall…but
Here they come again…
It’s the curtain call

    Thank you, Suzanne. I’ve always wondered about the hero worship that goes to those we see as stars. The prompt made me say what I think about that whole thing.
