Happy Envy

I raise a toast to success
and clink Champaign
with a hate-frozen gaze

blue eyes green inside,
burning a shameful burn
that I pray won’t bleed through my smile

I must eclipse you,
beat you
into my shadow,
feed you
the leftover bits of fame

or hitch myself
to an earthbound comet,
streaking angry stardust lightening
across the blue-black sky
before burning away
