Novelty Act

Novelty Act

A Poem by Abigale LeCavalier

Novelty Act

It seems that

the novelty

has worn off,

or at least

worn thin;


as a common bell.


No more questions

or adequate looks,

the unessential let down

of semi-serious emotion,

like looking down

the sink drain

in the bathroom

of a strangers house.


And a penny for each eye,

motionless still,

in the guilty repression

of a soul

ripped in two.


A journey that began

with an old realization,

a matter of fact statement

of identity,

and all the folly it brings.


All done with

no sympathetic fanfare,

only the dreary sound

of a lone,

distant trombone,

and the slow applause

of the drunk woman

intensely listening.


As if it were something

a little less important.


Than the obliteration

of me.
