A Poem by Matt Decker

Stars aren't like us. They inhabit a different reality. This poem records one earthling's serenade to these bona fide glitterati.

A world so diff'rent,
A land so distant,
A kingdom divided --
Yet somehow united.

No flash of renown,
Terrestrial town,
Found to catch
Or match
The lore or yore
Of your
Celestial crown.

Fans of fame
Fan the flame,
Stand in stands,
Cheer the game
And chase they
Who claim acclaim --
But in view of you,
It's just not the same.

Like golden glitter
And glamor,
I behold then wither
And stammer --
Effervescent luminescence
Transcends men's ken
And grammar
And all for which
They clamor.

In the end,
After the wind
Lie the jewels
Of men
Who ruled --
Celebs do ebb,
Scenes on screens
Fade to black
Just like that --
None can compare
To the rarefied air
Of your stellar lair
Way up there
Or the luster
Of your cluster --
I can only muster
This amazed gaze
And stare.
