I kept waiting for the movie to begin,
watching all the many faces walk in,
a quiet couple with a few kids in tow
buckets of popcorn, couple sodas y’know.
We were all together intrigued by the feature
the latest hot reel to blow minds for sure
that sort of ‘let me out of here’ my reality
is way too compelling, now escape civility.
For a few minutes we all sat down, settled
making sure no one near our business mettled
we wanted only the silver screen to take us
far away from any thing important did we fuss.
Still standing inside, the movie ended long ago,
wondering just which part I might already know.
