movie night (after "My Fair Lady")

Dancing and singing
(like that is normal)
on a whim
to keep the plot moving-

She was the hellcat
left in the cold,

and he waved his wand
putting spells on her

as though the snow
would melt at his touch.

I wanted her to sing alone.
I mean, she could have danced
all night without him.

You've got a real talent for finishing a poem. The end of this does what it should--turns things around and makes me read the poem again.
