trying so hard to be

Writers aren’t people 
exactly. 

Or, if they’re any good, 
they’re a whole lot of people 
trying so hard to be one person.

It’s like actors, 
who try so pathetically not to look in mirrors.

Who lean backward trying – 
only to see their faces 
in the reflecting chandeliers.


F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
