This was written as voice-over for a short film. It's from the point-of-view of a female dog who spends her time spying on a male dog roaming the surrounding neighborhood, while sh'es tied up in her backyard... I wanted to cast humans in the roles, and have them wearing plastic dog masks, like this:  http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_a7jkcMVp5Vg/TBRAKaXRJJI/AAAAAAAAMGM/2DS4PY6Yb8k/s1600/catsanddogs.jpg


 


You Are So Cool:


 


The yard feels small today. 


I think I bit my tongue.


It’s a stupid tongue. 


Where are you?


Where are you? Where are you? Where are you? 


God I hate my hair. 


Oh… There you are. 


… You are so cool.


 


 


I dreamt about you last night. 


Sitting in my tree. 


You offered me a cigarette and read me your screenplay. 


It was in French, but I pretended to understand. 


You said it was about gunplay. 


You said it was about violence. 


… You said a lot of things.


 


 


They yelled at me the other day. 


Told me to stay away from you. 


Told me you were a killer. 


They pulled my chain and yelled… Yelled so much. 


Told me “NO!”


So I wrote you something…


 


 


I love the way you read. 


I love the way you smoke. 


I love the way you roam. 


And how you glare…


 


I love the way you eat your prey. 


I love the way you scratch your nails. 


And how you comb your hair.


 


I love the way you laze about. 


I love the way you break the rules. 


I love the way you see me. 


… But pretend not to care.


 


My hipster poet. 


My Jimmy Dean. 


My breathless.


… You are so cool… You are so cool… You are so cool.
