38. Burt Reynolds is in Pain

On Colbert,
he hadn't walked out.

Post-commercial, instead,
he was chaired

beside the host.
I think he said

he was in pain.
He looked it.

Colbert paid him a compliment.
Burt looked like a man

who sees what's coming,
his nerves signs,

will over brain's
advantage long gone.

He knows it. He knows
he was the bandit.
