Because true ambition 
cannot be grasped 
by the fingers;

from nowhere on earth 
are the stars 
getting closer. 

Only here and there 
a few shiny trailblazers 

still grow richer, 

look younger, 

get laid.


Because true darkness 
is when 

nothing gets reflected; 
not even 

Not even shame.

Because true metaphor 
is sadistic as a
Star Trek transporter—

how willingly 
its users will
murder the tenor 

for the sake of driving 
a dangerous vehicle 

to its destination.
