She lived her life through him, through his movies.  He was a movie star who could’ve been a superstar transcending into a megastar but because he was once a rock star he was just a star.


She didn’t like her husband.  He was always brushing his teeth, drinking all the time while she walked behind him picking up tubes of toothpaste and empty beer cans.  Then, when it was time for bed, he expected sex from her.  Having sex with her husband, while once euphoric, now reminded her of a good time pick-up because the only time he actually found her appealing is when he drank kind of like the way men drank in bars, scoping out the pretty of unpretty women through dirty beer mugs and shot glasses.  She would often cry herself lonely after sex.   Not that her husband would notice considering he would already be drunk asleep and with clean teeth.

bright lights

big weather

empty banks

dirty rivers

ugly face

she shivers
