I’ll beggar no one
for flowing words of praise
or validation through effusive flattery,
or pretty poetic posies left passively
on my portfolio.

Instead I’ll write,
my words carefully crafted
to mirror my motion-picture mind.
Perhaps you will be drawn to them
and will see my dreams.

It matters not;
for this is your illusion,
not mine.
