In the wee hours of the night i tip to the t.v.
i search the channels, where are the oscars?
Where is the glitter of hollywood that makes everything
seem covered with gold and wonderful and what is beautiful
is good .
I finally locate the Oscar nights broadcast through the German network
which means i got to watch the British actress that played the queen of England
say Hello Germany with a wide smile
we are all in this together
Arthur Cohen is being interviewed
though he seems a bit reserved as the German actor
sends his love to his children who are watching this broadcast live.
I am back from the dark underground tunnels where the washing machine is washing
and i am a cinderella watching the ball
admiring the evening attire
i wonder who is washing their clothes
and what about the house with the swimming pool
seems a high price to pay for pretending to be someone else
and living other lives so the viewing audience can escape for a few hours
those dark tunnels near the earth, and the many hours washing clothes.
