The Movies | Richard Donnelly

“The Movies”
Richard Donnelly

I can’t make love to you
the way you want me to
I can’t be George Clooney
or Bradley Cooper
that would be impossible
and not because I can’t do
what they might do
it would be impossible because
I can’t look like them
I can’t drop the lights
stand thirty feet tall before
a rapt audience and say
I know why you love me
and it’s me
