Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

I had a dream

I had a dream


It was like The Hunger Games

meets The Terminator

the action and suspense,

the violence and special effects,


and sort of like Alien

meets The Monster’s Ball

with the gratuitous sex scene

between the most unlikely


and then the half a box of tissues part,

like Armageddon where Bruce Willis stays,

or the incredibly understated scene

in The Bridge to Terabithia


only in this scene, both are caught

in the tender throes of passion

and one bullet ends the lives of

the characters you identified with the most


but wait, this is Hollywood, not to mention

a dream, and even if they are dead,

something lives on: and a whole series

of sequels begins with some girl

with a dragon tattoo …
