The Corrosion

Inside because of the virus,
they sat watching Shakespeare
in Love
with an all-star cast
including Gwyneth Paltrow.
The man recalled fondly his
college course in Shakespeare
from his favorite professor.
When the film ended and the
credits came on, the man
noticed that one of the pro-
ducers was Harvey Wein-
stein. The man’s wife asked,
“Didn’t Gwyneth Paltrow
accuse him of inappropriate
sexual conduct?” The man’s
nostalgic mood was broken
by the cold face of reality
staring at him from the
credits. He cringed as he
thought about the corrosion
behind the silver screen.
