I am trapped in a movie
that never seems to end

the plot has gotten lost

the story board has fallen
from the wall

and all the sequence is messed up.

the climax comes at 1:00 am
without any buildup

the tragedy happens not to the hero
but to five random people who don’t know each other

someday the credits will roll on this feature
and the audience will look for the stars and players
at my funeral
if they haven’t walked out in the middle
due to lack of interest

then forget all about it

maybe it will disappear from existence
like celluloid that spontaneously combusts
or maybe it will be played at a classic film festival
out of context and not in its original format

but ultimately the most important part of the show is what is happening this very second
