Clark Gable


“Clark Gable”
I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London underground when it struck me
That I’ve been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie
So I changed my plans I rented a camera and a van and then I called you
“I need you to pretend that we are in love again” and you agreed to
I want so badly to believe that “there is truth, that love is real”
And I want life in every word to the extent that it’s absurd
I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in
The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it
The marker snapped and I yelled “quiet on the set” and then called “action!”
And I kissed you in a style that Clark Gable would have admired (I thought it classic)
I want so badly to believe that “there is truth, that love is real”
And I want life in every word to the extent that it’s absurd
I know you’re wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?
