My Kevin Spacey "celebrity obsession" developed
after I saw him in the critically acclaimed play, The Iceman Cometh.
Through seeing the play and then reading it, I had a personal epiphany
and took steps to better my life and follow my dreams.
In a recent Playboy interview, Spacey talks about
what it is like to be well known. "Imagine sitting on the subway
and the guy across from you is staring at you. He won't stop staring.
You look, maybe smile, maybe wink. But nothing helps. At least I generally
know why they're staring, but it can be unnerving. Sometimes it can be
a delightful, pleasant experience. Other times it's just odd. But once
again, their perceptions aren't necessarily the reality. It's fine if
they discuss me, but they don't know me."
As part of my "celebrity obsession" I have written
a collection of haikus based on my favorite Kevin Spacey roles/movies.
Writing the haikus forced me to focus on not only Spacey's roles, but
also at times, on my own feelings and desires.
My main motivation for writing the haikus was out of respect
and admiration for Spacey's excellent body of work. I hope they are a
delightful and pleasant experience.
