Release: scribbling on hotel paper

it’s hard scribbling letters–much less letters
with hangovers on hotel paper
to escape our cameras: mine, yours,
photographers we subscribe to
and checkout line flip-throughs–
the price of gold and platinum–
I’ll tell you: rich with anger
the fuel, (that) fans, the flames, (of) the famous
wanting to release like the millions moshing.
