stuck to the ticker

i imagine
telly owners
are stuck to the headline ticker
me on my live web line

every moment
has the hill ridden ride
the flying
like the thrill
but with someone else’s
always someone else’s

a day again
a people
to rid themselves
of a curse

i can do no more
than watch
but it’s no show
no tale of actors
safe despite the death

the flying trolley simile
leaves me a fragrant guilt
but the feeling in my torso
at these courageous ordinary joes
is that
