Exits and Entrances

She complains
About the narcissists
Admiring their reflections
On fragments of time

Their preoccupied gazes
Disregard the souls
Trying too hard
To fit around their ideals

Timed applause, contradicts
Her forced subtleties
Their perplexed admiration,
Comes in the form,
Of standing ovations

Alternating realities
With the beautiful,
Ensures a conveyer-belt
Set on delivering
Sought vanity

Title inspired by:
William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act 2/ Scene 7
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances"
