22/11/19 – Johansson

Scarlett Johansson
Became a stonemason.
She enjoyed sculpting the heads
Of people she’d worked with over the years.
You know, the likes of Bill Murray,
Jon Favreau, Rebecca Hall, Jennifer Aniston.
But her favourite to make was Mark Ruffalo
Because he had the same birthday as her!
Each year she would craft his handsome head
And smash it to a million pieces.

20/11/19 – Walsh

Kimberley Walsh loved waterfalls.
When touring with Girls Aloud
She’d stop the bus whenever they saw one.
She loved the way light bounced off them,
How colours weaved in and out of each other,
The scream of the water before its sudden death.
Sometimes, on stage, Kimberley would sing
‘Waterfalls’ by T.L.C
But in the middle of ‘Sound of the Underground’.
That’s how much she loved waterfalls,
And didn’t respect her bandmates.
