An ambiance of witty jokes and sarcastic banter
Of obscure pop culture references,
Classic novels to unknown authors,
And movies directed by old skinny white men
Who wears the word “genius” like a badge,
Nothing is slow, everything is spinning
A montage of sepia-toned laughter
And shots of coffee, vodka, and cigarettes
Fits into one novel description
I fell for a genre, a trope
Overplayed, nothing but a fantasy
Written as if you were supposed to save me
