So He takes the powder, gets all the way to Texas,
Guilt original as breathing- The Inevitable
Collisions resolve, the Off-screen stays Forgot,
Hidden loud between the ears-

First Light, (Start of pretend) then Title Cards:
“Childhood” “There’s your Boat!” And “Bang!”
And in 90 minutes we watch
A Man become by Years

Murder to Kiss turns to More than a Dream
Before He retires Deathless to the Cabin upstate
And She turns out to be 
The Mother we all wanted in The End!

But See if he was a Real Person
(I kept thinking the entire time...)
None of this movie Wouldda had
To happen in the First place.
