your crowd
with their casual sense
of predators' worshipper-purpose
determined to percolate endless
'til sense of your presence
might satisfy 
their insatiable desire
for the sight of you 
coursing among them:
you, maker of memories
you, living souvenir
you, envy of others,
their symbol is here,
so suddenly 
so close and 
so personal
so after the show
it's the show! 
and so life 
can stay staged 
for a few hours more:
it's feeding time,
fans are waiting..!
Jon Bohrn (1999)
