after Pessoa

Do you remember that film where there are multiple suns, or was it moons, or both; and that other film where the guy can’t escape this one day, waking up to the same song, same radio news, I would have been like ‘oh, bollocks,’ but he never swears, just crosses his eyes a bit and there are days when all you see are poodles or blue cars or a writer you’ve never heard of gets mentioned by two different people and it’s goose-bumpy but kind of cool at the same time; or days when you wake up with a smile and remember the night before and you’re like, okay already dawned day, dawn again.
