   but also    but   
     but also! 
      after finishing room foreground dogs were seated quietly   
      it comedy 
and being 
to that sticks in a film the 
scene that  
          also after finishing 
 you know what sticks in! 
          a figure 8 in concert    
     but comedy being the

title coiled vibrating string
boy reading how did he hide
so michael keaton in birdman of you
each i’m the wrong person to ask
i don’t actually know the man
i’ve heard his name mentioned in passing
you’d have to know the particulars experience
every idle plot mostly cell phones ever idly plot
circles go on shenanigans hide the title michael
keaton reading nevermore idea all clear
on set the next outlay of black string
round round round then overtop
plato erosion title reading never
notice the hockey puck
what hockey puck?

“To keep silent and act wise—still not as good as drinking sake, getting drunk and weeping” Ōtomo no Tabito

attached via ligaments
the helmsman who
helped your mother
into her tail for centuries

pairs off domestic pigeons
to brake and steer men
with vast attachments
to long lost lovers

lynch does the same
packing each scene
with centuries of fat and muscle
which formerly surrounded buried bones

the helmsman has rectrices
and is absent from the song’s brief, luminous life

       study in a color lab 
one finds that 
finds that finds that finds that finds that finds that 
finds that 
    that finds

      fall down a bit 
      this overall consumer

         on horseback the like words
climax approach cavalry 
not race toward a cavalry 
approach the burning candle
obsessions being slippery things

“At the heart of all the proclaimed love of abstractions and absolutes there is the characteristic inability to love actual persons, or to forgive them.” Les Murray


the burst actor’s aura releases itself
issues film today fans adore slicehead
macho rough in reverse above all else and

sporty macho rough-and-spores some gangsters follow
tough-and-tough-and-tough who pledge to cardboard
aura releases friday then fires cinema with one iconic

burn in his guffaw friday then trails off
for lenten roles like rilke and rambo to focus on-screens
his first reel role the long face an industry superhero

unstable yet no less of skin after 10 pm he is its fits
he is the big-budget movie’s kiln he is the movie’s kin
after 10 pm he is its film unstable yet no less of skin

“Proof that cinema is 50 years behind all other arts,” [draft]

The brain function!
each line flirting dangerously close to each above
suburban new jersey tan
sandy sandals skin cement

The patterns repeating!
another handsome man
illuminates his jaw
foreground becomes background
the first assistant cameraman earns his sleep
and Fellini’s big toe is bleeding again

On the third re-write:

          the cruel bees have sucked
          all the life from these poor flowers.

The camera pans, eye follows
think cribward, lens exposing film
light through the apartment’s curtain
sounds at city dawn, as an also-ran theatre
absolute silence; safer here between
her blinking lash against yr ear.
