Let's Go to the Movies Again

The crinkle of buttery popcorn clutched by the hands

of audiences transported to scenic, far away lands.

If the 3-D glasses

could see how time passes

I'd have cried buying tickets at the concession stands.

    This one's strangely melancholic. Hope that's what you're after (I think it is anyway)
