I saw 'The Bodyguard' starring
by Michael Walker
Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston
at Village 8, a cinema complex
in South Auckland, in the mid-1990s
with my then girlfriend, a shares trader.
There was romance onscreen and off.
I met her at a Saturday night singles club:
I thought I was in a real romance like Kevin
until she discarded me
like another one of her deals.
However, I did not discard Houston singing
'I Will Always Love You'.
