Hold A Good Thought

itís as if everyone wanted to see through it
as much they desired your success as your failure
equally to love and despise
to put on a pedestal and to pull it away

symbol
carnal innocence
as much our creation as yours
belonged to the public
no not anything
no not anyone
else
made you a star

a dollar for your thoughts?
I want to be wonderful
smile, wave
calling your name

help help
can it be
very definitely a woman
very definitely an icon
cleavage?
those poor confused censors
doctor, please
leave the ovaries

fifty cents for your soul
canít live up to it
waif
orphan
anyone can see I love you

hold a good thought for me.....
