A Serene Heart at the Movies by William Matthews

by dinkysniff

She strode to her car and turned the key and

a peony of bomb bloomed all at once.

The film is rated R for violence.

Dear fellow readers of *The Iliad*,

they found half her pinky in the roses.

Guns are the jewelry of men, and cars.

Think how much the script must have hated her

to blow her up in that burgundy Rolls,

or loved her, maybe, except it's only

a movie, she's not real, the way your sex

fantasies fly in under the moral

radar, and don't distract you, not at all,

from the drab errands of the intellect

and the spent time that money cannot buy.
