An Old Trophy

Knowing someone doesn’t need you

is like lukewarm water.

Can’t help the wrinkles in my face

can do this on your own

make the world your bitch

and I will cheer

from the front row

number one fan t-shirt

maybe a hot dog.

Yet, if they can do it all,

why am I, around?

The funny friend who dances

sings and reminds them

they had a past.

Like an empty box-

it was once something,

maybe you did at one point

but now- on a shelf collecting dust

(your dust) – an old trophy.

But I’ll ignore it-

have lunch like normal

smile at pictures of your cat

and I’ll cheer you on

as you save the world.
