Bette Davis

before the stars
fall tonight,
fasten your seat belts.
It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
indivisible, you’re
a constellation
burning invincible
splitting apart
the darkest night

you sang, and we danced
kept me prisoner,
I’m still in the trance,
tender you remain
giving of love
though once
you stood
in the cold

Abandoned yet steadfast
Confident. Demons veiled
from confidantes;
Exposed to all, only once
In a small movie.

But tonight
tonight, you show
for the last number, and so
ladies and gentlemen,
if you’ve go the lights
leave ’em behind
just this time
before the stars
fall tonight
Fasten your seat belts
It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
