Photograph by Robert Doisneau


The stars we saw
Were construction lights but we
didn’t know anything else
We tried so hard to think
We were the only things real in that
constructed world
But it didn’t matter how hard we hit
and tried to crack
We could only be the hard plastic
that came with it all
Impossible to break 
Constantly building 
Nothing genuine 
Always new
Adjusting 
To the most fake thing
We’ve ever seen 

– Natalie Stagnaro
