A Shallow Heart You Bring To Me

Surface words drip from your mouth,
   words found in screen plays,
     repeated over and over to me,
       to others, to no one specific.

As if waiting for the crowds to applaud,
   you bow your head slightly
     with indignation you find ‘earned’,
       while others simply turn and walk away.
