MOONDUST
stardust
fartdust
freak out
frenzy
fuck fest
of ''Friends'' on TV
you are supposed
to watch each
night
and watch again
in re-runs
and unconsciously
emulate
behavior
learned thru
repetitive
viewing
why do all
TV newspeople
have that thin-lipped
way of
inflecting
no matter
whether they are
asian black white
male female gay
all talk with
semi-bland raised
eyeball
even
the fruity weatherman
who I heard
on good merit
likes to get
shat upon by
his lover
glamour killed
Dana Plato
who was somebody's
child
and died
because she needed
to die
in squalid
glitz
the boyfriend
took photos
of her gurgling
death rattle
and sold it
to a tabloid
while on the
public channel
the slovenly
interviewer
chats with
another dope
pushing
another movie
that grossed 45
million its
first week
and Siskel
and Ebert are
fighting in
the captain's tower
and there's the
Oscar-winning
actor
who had a
menage a trois
then beat up
one of the mistresses
because she thought
it was for money
that great heroic
tinseltown star
all those
Hollywood
fuckers
killing you
killing me
has anyone
ever wanked
to ''StarSearch''
and accidentally
shot a load
while Ed McMahon's
face was on
the screen
always a
disappointment
the things
we do
for love
and the nation
is a gore salad
of horrific
stretched facelifts
and liposuction fat
floods
the streets of
phantastic L.A.
cable TV
is slow euthanasia
imagine
the world
in 50 years
when everyone has
their own
satellite
then everyone will be
famously
unknown
for 15 second
intervals
the networks will
air vivisection
just to lure
sponsors
''An all-new
season finale
episode
you won't miss
- World's Funniest
Torments
Of Hell
on Fox Friday . . . ''
''Do you want me
to shut it off, honey?''
my wife asks me
''It's already on,''
I said.
