She loved him onscreen
And worshipped him
Dreamt of meeting him
She would swoon
And probably faint
If he appeared
In person in her presence
If he ever spoke to her
She would turn to stone
She thought of the words
That he would utter
And then one day
In a different country
Where he was
No big celebrity
She saw him sleeping
Drunk and wasted
Unkempt hair
Drooling mouth
All her fantasies
Just went south
She looked hard
To make sure it was him
He just lay there
Slopped on the seat
She suddenly realized
Her hero was human
And probably not
All that she had imagined
