Your Morning Chyron

The best thing about the news
Is that it is not your life.
That’s why you follow stories—

All those lives that have to be,
That can only be those lives
And not one of them is yours.

Imagination couldn’t
Possibly overproduce
Detailed tales like the news does,

Although it steals what it can
And resells rearrangements
Branded based on true events.

Gossip, too. All the lives lived
Around you you couldn’t live,
Wouldn’t live, didn’t have to.

They’re not you! That’s not your life,
And, unlike the life you live,
They always come with sequels.
