chris who always

plays the bad guy

sometimes gets

the right script &

money & tries

to do the right thing

genuinely / like

while he saves

someone (he talks

in an earnest but

hurried manner (in

a car going fast

through mexican

streets somewhere))

sure the flashes of

light / colour it will

evidence real street

paraphernalia so he

acts & he thinks of

how he fills the role

how earnest he is

how he might show

friends the scene how

they might (the friends

need it) mix up &

equate his genuine care

in these actions with

something inner in

chris he thinks this

while mostly dis-

counting it too he

knows he will always

turn / produce a derringer

maybe & then bead sweat

return to type poor

chris just looking so

scheming & so cool
