Serenity now!

I'm very excited about the release of Serenity (the movie based on the Firefly TV show) on September 30th, and have been anticipating it for some time. Last Friday, when I checked the Alamo Drafthouse website for showtimes, I saw that they were having a special sneak preview on Wednesday, September 28th, in conjunction with Two of the actresses from the show, Summer Glau (River) and Jewel Staite (Kaylee) are going to be in attendance and will host a Q&A session.

To win tickets, you had to write a love poem to one of the characters on the show. It's not my best work, but good enough, I guess. :) Here is my winning poem:

My Fair Kaylee

When first we met I was broke-down,
But you knew how to make me whole.
The rogues you run with may smuggle cattle,
But my heart is what you stole.

Life with me ain't easy, that's for gorram sure.
Like that time I blew up at you for no reason.
Good thing the Captain patched things up,
Or it would have been an even shorter season.

Your gentle touch makes me burn with pleasure!
Whether on the Rim or in the Core,
Through the 'verse I'll join you, if you'll have me,
And face Reavers and Alliance and more.

I give you breath, but you breathe life into me.
Without you I would be adrift.
With me you will always be home,
With me...
