A sandy beach with table set up as for a panel discussion.
MEDIATOR: So how did it feel to have your heart broken?
FILM DIRECTOR: It was a process
Not unlike salsa -- a lot of one-two-three,
Some turning around and coming back for more.
FILM CRITIC: I didn't experience it that way at all;
It was much more tense and drawn out,
And then all of a sudden I was seized by the sense
That there really was no way out except
Into the ground.
POET: It felt like a stroke. I was dizzy,
And my heart -- my cardiovascular system,
Not a blazon, not a symbol, mi cuore --
Felt like it had been kicked repeatedly.
HEDGE FUND TRADER: It felt like an uncovered call.
