Jack Reacher the Movie

He watched the show, sitting on the bleachers,
that author Lee Child,
as his creation, the great Jack Reacher,
became five foot seven, meek and mild.

NOTE: I'm sure I'm not the only one who was gravely disappointed at Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. *sigh*

As at the cinema

The life made a film just for me 
was my producer. 
I was the actor and the creator. 
I created every day as my last one. 
The end of the film was unknown...
Precisely as at the cinema

Sung in the wild,

not unlike an age to aspire,

a maker of the call too many chime to beguile-

against unlawful spy,

to the face we deny the right,

I rely tentatively the waste on tonight.

(Dedicated to Anthony Perkins who died September 12, 1992.)

You starred in Psycho way back in 1960.
Many years later you starred in the first Disney film that was rated PG.
That film was the Black Hole and your performance in it was great.
You starred as Dr.Alex Durant but first you were Norman Bates.
When you died in 1992, the world lost a talented thespian.
Years later we lost your wife in New York's tragedy in 2001.
When Hitchcock made the blood in the shower scene, he used chocolate syrup.
Soon after, you started starring in movies that were made in Europe.
It's sad that we will never see you again.
But at least we can still see the movies you were in.

Silencing Light

Vision’s blurring around the edges now—
The perfect vignette for silent film;
The text screams bold inside your head;
The crickets wail from amongst the trees.

You’re the femme fatale in this deathly skit,
Doubling trouble with perfect smiles,
Charming your way through grim impasse:
To be or not to be.

Have you left enough clues as to your fate?
Will a savior know to find you?
Alas, there’s none here to save but you,
As the warmth he left creeps from you.

Perhaps blood shed will quench the thirst,
But veins cut once might drain you—
So listen still for a quiet step:
Executioner or lover.

What light from yonder window breaks?
It’s the after, not an angel.

Spotlight death

Shush...Did you hear that? 
Stifled pleads gesture forward
Cameras, blind us
from penetrating bright light
No one calls, simply records

Contest theme: Shush...Did you hear that?

Swan Song

I want to entertain the virus
and make it's stay seem wrong.
When acts of death for everyone
are playing for too long.

And all the times we take for them
are lost in hopes gone long.
When fears that we must make of them
are notes we'll grow to song.

And everything we take from them
for saying we're too strong-
when note for note we'll sing to them
in choke your words swan song.

A Reflective Poem Of The 1970's Drive In Movie Mark Of The Witch

There is a stack of books over there 
One has information that could change your life if you care 
Then have your collegiate book fair 
And in the end you will end up with a scare 

You will find out about your descendents past 
On that seventies stage of academics with flasks 
Oh my you lovely book warm 
Your attitude will  turn 

If you are obsessed with these pages 
At your intellectual ages 
A witch will invade your space 
And you may have to built your case 

Why oh why are these younglings destined to die 
Watch Mark of the Witch 
that has Ivy Leaguers who all they do is  .
