Everyone here absolutely loves triumph
and the perseverance of our intangibles
and our tactiles. Our love of these things
is increased when protagonists fly through
the air after bombs explode
or when buses take really huge
jumps or when good guys fall
in love or when teenagers
fall in love, the kind of love
that will fall apart later, but is validated
now, despite what our parents and teachers
and producers say, and we say we just
won’t show that part now.
