Nothing really to write about except for that I played hooky from work yesterday and went to see Jack the Giant Slayer and then snuck in to see OZ The Great and Powerful. Bad. . .I know. . .But it’s done and over now. So get over it already!
“Jack the Giant Slayer”. . .a breathless piece of work. My fav character. . .two-headed giant. Of course Ewen McGregor wasn’t bad either;)!
“OZ The Great and Powerful”. . .a stunning piece of work. My fav character. . .China Girl.
The following poem was one of two poems nominated for a 2011 Pushcart Prize. . .Enjoy.
Beads of sweat
trickled down slow
between the perfumed citrus folds
of her beautiful round breasts
unbeknownst to the woman
innocently directing me to the nearest freeway
under a blazing sun of 115 degree weather;
and I almost envisioned myself on her
disguised as one of those perfect size atoms
of H2O evaporating into an open of a pore
uninvited, like rape after a date of kissing and no sex
only to proliferate in the end into a bead of virgin sweat.
