Seeking Fame

I watched the movie,
My Week With Marilyn .
a bitter sweet romanticized
version of a young man’s
brush with fame.

Who I saw in the portrayal
of Marilyn, were other stars
equally talented and frail.

Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson,
and even Brittney Spears.

A treasure trove for those
who hung on to the star’s fame
pushing them to their limits
massaging their fragile egos

cashing in on the many perks
while bolstering them to maintain

an excessive lifestyle.
