we'll go to Paris, he tells her
as genuine as any hungry actor
reciting his lines to a packed house

their hands fit together, almost
his generic brand beauty
with the eyes and the lashes and the lips
she could be anyone's daughtersisterneighbor

and it feels exactly like last time
last week and
the time before that

because it's only coffee rings on dog-eared scripts
typecast lovers, interchangeable roles
like a relay race, syncopated breath,
you're in, you're out – don't miss a beat.
