Silver screen

We flatline on screens
in our official videos
we let artists play with us
our living essence
to conjure our presence
but mostly it’s only our egos
so all they convey is cool memes…

images roll emotions in motion
each frame boosting numbers
in the herd of shots
accumulating the million milestone views
to pay our dues for the bright stage spots.

Virality makes us 2D
by the gravity of silver
the meanness of screens with counters
valuing us like commodity trading tickers.
