Shaking The Dust off

Keep your eyes glued to the screen as gossip columns belch smugly about a minor celebrity’s weight gain, and smirk as you realize they are imperfect vessels of flesh and desire, the same as you. Hold those you tolerate tight, they may leave tomorrow. Planes to catch and dreams to follow, and while you were adequate at warming the bed, and shielding them from the sharp point of loneliness, you may no longer fit in their five-year plan.

But just as the actress slims down and lands a starring role, your fortune can also change, maybe even for the better.
