"Once More, With Adjustments"- Old Episodes &Older Eyes
[rhetorical verse in Shakesperean Sonnet Form]

PART 1: FROM DETAIL TO BIG PICTURE


(1) THE CROSS THAT ANGEL GAVE HER WAS NOT ON

when Luke reached down to kill, BUT THEN APPEARED

right there, right by her heart -- THEN POOF, IT'S GONE

right after Luke's right hand's flesh had been seared.



A "PICKY" THING TO NOTICE, but I do.

With hindsight from six seasons' future fact,

I find my eyes too jaded to pursue

loose threads of beauty, 'til new seams are tacked.


The threads that yield more recent misery

were clearly visible right from the start.

And if your heart enjoyed the fantasy,

reality now's pulled those seams apart.


I guess I'm saying, now, I can't be blind

to what it might have been. I've changed my mind.


(2) THE CHALLENGE I'D SET FORTH was to explore

the Buffy tapestry -- it's darks and lights.

Find patterns to remember and adore.

And thereby -- should we ever set our sights . . .


. . . on telling TV tales -- we'd have clear lines

well chalked in mem'ry by Joss Whedon's hand.

Have learned the secrets of his best designs.

BUT NOW I want to change what I had planned.


WHAT IF we could change anything? BEGIN:

FIRST I'd persuade Ms. Holmes to take "the" role.

THEN cast "the cooler Xander" (his real twin).

AND I would play the vampire with a soul. <g>


NO WAIT, don't mock me with your monkey pants.

(Hey, I can dream.) New Angel comes from France!
