APED: "like mine"

July 7th, 2009 (08:28 pm)

this is it, doll,
said the man
whose gun
was big
onscreen
like mine

he plugged
two guys
and then
he laughed
his laugh
like mine

he got away
and hid
but the cops
found him
in his hideout
like mine

he went to trial
and then
the judge
read out
his sentence
like mine

his movie runs
twice a week
on cable
locked
to schedule
like mine

and when it ends
like always
it's the same
like always
it ends
his story
like mine

I like this! Gradually gives you the image of a prisoner watching the same movie over and over again.

Speaking of being stuck watching a movie, I did go and see Transformers II last weekend. It lived down to expectations. The robots are absolutely as stereotypical as the article you linked to stated. (They made U of Penn look good, though, and John Turturro is always fun to watch.)
