it has its’ own soundtrack and color scheme

and a theme to the way the chapters of the story

flow from one into the other

like a perfectly matched table to the cloth

serving the best dinner at the most memorable party

where the last bite eaten leaves everyone smiling

someone toasts to the moment in a ticker screen flash

as the movie playing inside our heads skips a beat

by a drop of the dish we are washing

which is fine because it was time to find

where we left that cold cup of coffee anyway
