(Damien Chazelle 2022)
Hollywood is an elephant,
the life of the party in your living room
you invite into the front door
to carry the corpses out back.
In Hollywood we all are circus animals.
Typecast like Brad Pitt or Margot Robbie,
broken old man and hysteronic excess.
A meat grinder recycling the best bits
stuck between its teeth.
