- The life unspoken for.

Au hasard Balthazar, by Robert Bresson

Last night I cried,
	Never knowing why,
		With no tears and eyes dry.
		I turned on the radio,
		And everything sounded like a lie.
		It hit me in the eye,
			With no room to give another try,
				For a simple way to die.
But then,
	I cried again,
		And tears were falling from the sky.

Smack the radio!
	You don't need music to dance!
    and Movements
		Dance with that car who makes a turn
		Dance with that fire who starts to burn
		Dance with that flower with no fern
		Dance at a bus stop with no ticket to return
Now collect your radio in pieces
	Spray it like rainbow dusts
		For those kids to yearn.

- We can never reach *Now*, but only the moment before it.

Memento, by Christopher Nolan

Put down your journal!
	You are recording death!
Look at the world around you!
	It's hard to catch a breath!
Listen to the signal!
	Like a bird returning to her nest!
Run and catch the whistle!
	Don't forget to bring the jest!
Oh! Nostalgia!
	It's not the memorable past,
		But the immediate future!

Social Satire/Romance
Desperate Living, by John Waters

The woman is getting desperate,
	It takes too long to dump the trash,
		In the middle of the night,
			When the neighbors have their lights on,
		Every Thursday or so,
			When there are special guests,
		Inviting themselves over,
			To stay up all night in the garden,
		Ready for some serious scenary,
	On the rumor that was spreaded,
That the woman is getting desperate.
