marionette no more

this marionette
has the demeanor
of a dragon
dragging
his hoarde
of empty
enticements
across
the arid desert
he is forced
to reflect
in an effort
to deflect
the desperate
attention seeker
seeking
to capsize
his inflatable
cardiac distress
pay attention
to the way
he casually
dances
in his seat
oblivious
to the obvious
ploys
unwilling
to accept that
mimicked adoration
as a means
to deny
the meaning
in the intoxicated
toxicity
spewed
in place
of real emotional
expressionistic
falsehoods
so he took
the sheer audacity
used it
to shear
the strings
you tried to
bind him with
now he flies
freely
even sitting
alone
waiting
for his flight
to board
bored with
the constant games
