To find your dreams
within the pages of a magazine
would seem impossible
if not obscene.
Cut out words and pictures, they say
that represent your future
come what may, anything
to keep the fear at bay.
To peruse the air-brushed faces
and wish for far off places,
I languish here still, looking for illumination,
finding only traces.
