SA(L)VAGING THE STARLET

David Jalajel

Her stumble’s nebulous, so they start to question
the image her body projects. Superstitious actors
from the guild will toil and trouble on opening night. 

So do a little digging. She’s iridescent, irresistible,
and you’ll uncover all the covetous estates when
the paparazzi begin to grumble on opening night. 

They curse her – conjuring up a cocoon of lust. So
her evolution becomes a supernatural notion: one
that promises to bare her stubble on opening night. 

Engage her surroundings. It’ll all be press-worthy (yet
elusive) after the franchise bursts its bubble – and then
the tinsel islands will start to tumble on opening night. 

Shaped by sports machines: a young star who’d struggled
with her lyrics - Now she’s red-hot, a comet on the Hill,
and she’s ripe to show she’s supple on opening night.
