World Cinema OR Clouds, Pointing Fingers at Distant Thoughts


Today’s poem was first published in CC&D magazine, Scars Publications (US) 2,000 and subsequently in my collection.

I love world cinema. I watch it in clouds every day. Like all good cinema, as well as entertaining us, a cloudy sky is inclined to make us thoughtful...

WORLD CINEMA or CLOUDS, POINTING FINGERS AT DISTANT THOUGHTS

Spread on a coat,
hands on hips,
watching clouds
like movie clips;
a coming together
of shadows,
words unfamiliar,
world cinema;
two fingers touch,
marking a twin
celebration, cautious
anticipation;
main feature, re-make
of a classic,
better left well alone
for television?

Clouds, camera, action…
