a game i play

A game I play about fame I pick a name Like, say John Lennon and pretend for a moment I lived his life

the glory the spectacle the genius (in no particular order) the path to his wife death

I ask myself would I trade my own to be Yoko? No.

I move on Paul or Linda? Warhol or Mapplethorp? Marilyn? Morrison? Jimi or Janis? JFK or Jackie O? Choose.

The weight of this game exhausts me as if I’ve run a marathon in which I cannot possibly win.

Can you?
