Who Are You Wearing?

Can you get more love than this?
Blown-out blond hair in a blunt cut
swings around her golden head
with every pivot.
To the cry of her name,
towards and away
from nameless mortals
watching on tv.
Her hand-spangled gown
with every swish and sway
of her Cannes camera-ready corps,
and, I wanna
feel le tapis rouge under my feet,
to soak up what was meant to be
to toast the week-end gross
from a thousand screens
launched in my honor,
my face a shrine,
riding high on flash
Valium to calm the riptide.
(don’t touch my air-brushed lips)
before the bling
in the box.
