Movie Theater


Film reel nostalgia,
a real funny look back.

Isn't it grand?
we can live the past for years.

From the abuse and pain,
to the elaborate break-ups and lonely drinking.

Drugs only ever hid scenes of the movie,
not giving the full Oscar winning production.

I missed my own feature flick,
I was out somewhere,
high,
trying to forget,
every little camera fixed shot.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
