Star Search – Written December 2021 (Aged 46)

Star Search

i see unhappiness
as the sum total
of disappointment
minus expectation
as people find themselves
in difficult situations
like a let down,
or not quite the dreams
no so much happy ever after
but more like a scream
i see the frustration
that despite the cleverness
and the start lit turn
the talent agent never noticed
and contracts burned

James Garratt – December 2021
