I Made This

Shows over.
After the credits a clip runs
emulating old projector films’
look and sound.
The words show
Ten Thirteen Productions
and a kid’s voice shouts
“I made this!”

Remember? It ends
the closing credits for “X-Files.”
It caught my attention
and stuck with me.

It looked like it would be dumb luck
that something like that would work;
Or maybe the construct didn’t
and the only one impressed is me.
