Books and Film

In youth, to myself I thought,
'Is true love bound in some far away place? '
I flew off— picturing dreams to be had.
Ah, so much in books and on film I saw
And so I settled my gaze,
Westward to love.

And I met a girl who knew,
Trades of skin which came and quickly fell,
Of longings true it was not to be had.
Ah, so much in books and on film I saw,
So I left her one glad day,
For we did not love.

O love, so nebulous a thing,
Windings on wheels, windy fates command,
If I could but contain her starry light,
In a wrapped box of hopes, still, on reels,
Recorded in books, in films— fables,
Ah, such an album I would dream.

Then came my only, true one,
The coolest rains held in longest summer,
But soon even bliss in a shower ends
And words to eyes but stories— whims.
Ah, so many pictures I made,
In a camera without film.

THEY WANT TO FILM MY PAINS

THEY WANT TO FILM MY PAINS

Now they want to make a film
About me and the pains of yesterdays,
But if only they could feel
What it is I feel
They would all be so I'll,
My emptiness has left a Life time marks
All over my heart
Oh, the cuts are very deep
I feel most of the time I couldn't breathe
But now they want to film me
Make stories about my pains
My life of a beaten down past
Can they see my fears
My tears of blood rolling down my face?
My heart bleeds the pains of Yesterdays
That keeps eating away at my soul
I had to take a deep breath
And I gave them my best of what it is I hold
Deep down in my mind
That keeps me locked in that time
When they ask me
If they could film me and all my pains
I just moved my head
Then I said yes
That is when I see the eyes of all times
Dark Angel looking deeper into mine
I crawled into my cold empty bed
Praying one day this will all end
I pulled the cold sheets over my heard
Like I was already dead.

Film school

He roams the city, she sits there
What a pity
He sees every light, every street, but justice does not shrink
For she sees every memory, every song, like film placed in her eyes that she couldn't push away

Film Noir

Babe called me Film Noir
Said my head was darker than onyx, ashes and ebony,
And I was soaking in a solace that was felt with my presence,
Like hot candle wax dripped down the spine.

Film Noir with more than fifty shades of grey,
And messages I liked to leave in his pants pocket
"God is Dead" to deepen his uncertainty of faith.
Merlot on my tongue like a mouthful of blood while I watch him unravel.

Babe called me Film Noir
Said I always felt like home,
Like home was hell and made you anxious and suicidal,
Like a door with nothing behind it.

Film Noir that was art and lovely and terrifying.
And appreciated for it's talent of deepening wounds that were thought to be already healed.
Then kissed them apologetically, stitching them closed,
But so insincere.

Maybe now he's my Film Noir,
So tragically ending our love.
Like broken china on the floor of the parlor,
So precious to look at, but unusable and a waste.
Till the day he took his life
Babe called me Film Noir.

Film

The Film is running Thin
Flapping Free round the reel
Then hits the Final Frame,
Freezes up on the screen
Reflecting all the same
Faded views in bin Ends
From the cutting room floor
Laid so Numbered, Ignored.

Our Science Film

Our Science Film

Autumn colors leave me
Pining for black and white
Grammar school reel to reel
Science films snaking through
Rackety Cold War projectors
Chalk motes swarming
Cones of gibbering light
Can-do voice-overs
Always a hiccup off
Read by radio men
Sporting pale miens
Pie plate headphones
Brylcreem slick
Perhaps a Scholastic
Short featuring winsome
Child actors playing
You and me
Button noses
Wrinkled in stricken
Joy at a baby bunny
Wide eyed and stock still
In an apple crate
Beneath an apple tree
Leaves schooling in binary
Shimmer on the summer
Breeze blowing through our film
An introduction to photosynthesis
Or the metamorphosis of caterpillars
It matters little to you
Beribboned in gingham
Or me flying flapping
Dungarees
Platinum hair
Whipping our faces
Sky a china white
Behind ivory billows
Framed forever
Dimpled and laughing
Milkweed exploding
From our fingers like secrets
Shared in alabaster
Sign language.

Film

Life is like a picture, taken with a film camera
You take the picture, but you don't see how it looks right away
You worry that the picture would be blurry
Or worry that it won't work out the way you want it to
You develop the film, turn those negatives into beautiful pictures.
And if you mess up on one photo, you still have 24 or more beautiful pictures for that reel.
Life is like that
You work hard, but you don't see the fruit of your labor right away
You worry about so many things and think about all the things that could go wrong.
Like film, you develop
The negatives can be used to become beautiful wonderful positives in your life.
If you mess up, you have more chances.
Life is full of chances
So life is like a photo
A photo you take on a film camera
And you are the photographer
So take some beautiful pictures.
