A Tribute To Kim Novak’s Films - Poem by Lento Maez

We walked “The French Line” which was no “Pushover”
When someone broke wind that sounded like “Phfft”
We all thought it was the “Son of Sinbad” however, we were
“5 Against the House” which was no “Picnic” because of
“The Man with the Golden Arm” saying he wanted to play
“The Eddy Duchin Story” with “Jeanne Eagles” who wanted
Her “Pal Joey” instead which gave us all “Vertigo” that only
The seer could cure with her “Bell, Book and Candle” in
The “Middle of the Night” causing us to feel like “Strangers
When We Meet” with “The Notorious Lady” who wasn’t there
Because it was “The Boys Night Out” and they went to see
“Of Human Bondage” or was it “Kiss Me Stupid” which told
Of “The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders” mimicking
“The Legend of Lylah Clare” who made her acting debut
In “The Great Train Robbery” a half hearted attempt at
Cinema by the way she was “The Third Girl from the Left”
Telling “Tales That Witness Madness” which was a kind of
“Satan’s Triangle” trilogy with “The White Buffalo” pretending
To be “Just a Gigolo” this caused everyone to laugh so hard
“The Mirror Crack’d” in the “Malibu” house where “The Children” were playing the closing stanza of “Liebestraum” which everyone knows is from Franz List’s ‘Dream of Love’

    This is fantastic.!
    I remember all these films
    How you were able linguistically to weave them all together in a wonderful sequence is a real MARVEL
    .Loved it,
