FADE TO BLACK

A scene from a movie screen,
cinemascope and technicolor,
surround sound and dolby
in an Imax theater. Larger
than life. The embraces look
bigger. The exchanges look
bigger. The problems look
bigger. Our hero solves the world
in an hour and forty-seven
ticks of the clock. Stock footage,
A kiss for luck and goodbye,
he lets out a regretful sigh,
and she starts to cry. Other
adventures await and it’s great
we had that time to spend.
But in the end, my horse plods off
into the sunset. A figure in
silhouette. Fade to black…
