Academy Award for Best Awkward Movie (6/10/14)

I don’t want love that spirals from a script.
I want wooden, stilted dialogue
I want the critics to hate us
I want badly-drawn clichés
And I want jokes that nobody gets
Because we improvise
Because we don’t know what we’re doing
Because I am bad with words when they are not written
Because we aren’t on a silver screen
Because we are here and we are now and we are so alive.
I don’t want to live in a monochrome world
I want you and your glorious technicolour.

Seventh in my ‘Colours’ series of poems. I wasn’t too sure about this one, but my tutor liked it. Not sure why I have such a vivid memory of a snail getting stuck in my sandal, but anyway.

Other colours: Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red
