Star Shine Steal

a hollow
bell ringing
emergency calls
treading on
threads bare
knocking on
a stumbling block
sifting through a screen door
of envious regrets,
holding up a mirror
to someone else’s glimmer
a will of
paper thin
cutting teeth
berating others’
simmering perfect frames
obsessing to be inside
that snapshot
filtering the light
from all that shine
stealing the sight
from all who see

I am the comet tail falling from her star.
