Rio is moonlight and marble mansions
a b&w postcard shot day for night
more Florida than Florida.
An ex-nazi marries an ex-lover,
ideology reduced to men in suits
discussing plans in drawing rooms.
But love remains the true motivator
that turns the key to the wine cellar
and flicks a quick kiss between spies
to fool the villain who still lives with mother
and who's committed the sole indiscretion
of falling in love and so must die.
