People in a Movie

The dollar notes in the metal box are

finally returned to him. She begs

(almost like a beggar begging for a

morsel of bread), but he won't stay.

The audience presses a button on

the remote, and sees them again,

in his room. Smoking a cigarette,

he calls her 'a lion'. Not a complaint.

People in a movie are not real.

They can be forever in love,

no matter how the story ends

with no love.

The audience hopes she's an actress

and he an actor. Someone please

press a button and let us love,
