Dull Mimickers

They’re rolling up the red carpet now,

clearing away the lipsticked glasses,

sweeping away the glitter and grime of

the soiree–a party just to fill time.


Getting to the job always takes longer

than the return, but no one ever knows why.

And getting home is never satisfying,

more bills to clean, and messes to pay for.


But their backs are strong, and wills’ stronger,

despite the sciatica, despite the fear of dying

having never done anything but clean up

after the dull mimickers of Hollywood.
