the movies

she gets up early in the morning
takes the bus to the video store
she works the arthouse and the foreign language
hums the soundtracks as she walks the floor

its kinda dark inside but she quite likes that
works the checkout and recites the lines
on quiet days she watches all her favourites
she's seen the leopard a thousand times

she's worked here for four years now
more really if you count the summers before
she knows its only temporary
she's got big plans that she's working towards

she's working on a movie
already knows what its gonna be called
she's picked out who'll play the leading lady
and hums her theme song as she walks the floor
