National Poetry Month, Day 17

tonight I heard a different song from yet another movie.
I don’t know if they still do this, but you remember how
in the late 80s/early 90s they would make certain songs
specifically for certain movies, and the video would just
be like an extended commercial with cross fades?

This was one of those. I got it in my Easter basket
before I’d ever even seen the movie, maybe that’s when
I got the book too, so by the time we finally saw it
at the second-run super save theater, any sense
of wonder was replaced by familiarity and cynicism.

do you remember it like me,
the first time you bit foil?
