Poetry

Movies

I always love watching movies, because I get lost in them. I become the character; I feel sadness, anger, loneliness and love with the protagonist on screen. But what I wanted to write was a short poem about the tingly feeling you get when the movie ends, and you remember who you are — like waking up from a trance.

escape on Friday nights

to a new reality under the projector lens

feel the pieces

that fit like puzzles through your bones

 

science fiction

astronaut

doctor

alcoholic

action

thirty

twelve

— they are all you

 

and the dialogue that rings through

your axis

 

as you

 

spend time off of your face

masked by a new singularity

full of sparking broken glass

and cheesy ad-libs

 

but when the credits roll

you begin to remember your

own face

and feel your

own finger tips
