i didnt know what time it was

      from the song title by rodgers and hart

i am famous for not being famous. sometimes people will see me and ask who i am. how disappointed they are when they find out i am just me. i have been imagined to be a singer, a jazz musician, a really wealthy guy, a ball player, and a famous politician. once i told a guy that he had it wrong, and that i was tupac shakur. his look was priceless. but in my own life i am just a fast flickering star.

looking at my watch
northern lights
in the crystal
