The Graduate as an Art House Action Flick
Dustin Hoffman opens
an empty box of maps.
His sunburnt hands swim
in the stagnant attic.
Mrs. Robinson pulls off her mask:
Surprise!its that Russian spy
he killed: Chernobyl, 77.
Later, he hijacks a bus
and holds his lovers daughter for ransom.
He leads police on a wild car chase
through Berkeley. It ends
in close-up: his sweaty mouth.
