Spotlight on . . . Rebecca

Rebecca
(after Alfred Hitchcock’s film)

Lost at sea

The Wars of the Narratives
bidding for control
with disinformation of the heart

Reality subtracted from reality
leaves what?

An empty tennis court?

And perhaps we tell our tales with bias
the good, the bad, the melodramatic

But how the heart has found its task
when truly made to work —
to love, to act in love

at the rock face, information’s motherlode,
free to be
constructive not constructed

A. H / K. H-H (30th October 2018)

my goodness, 200 poems and i manage to spotlight the same one i started with last november again (broken). I am not obsessed with it. Really. I think.

So, another. This one inspired by seeing Hitchcock’s film, chosen now as it’s about people living with the broken.

personal feature

not white
like in Pather Panchali
nor wide, Onibaba
just right

Ozu

(after seeing Late Spring)

empty shots move me
vase, trees, tea, hint at the whole
he knows, apple peeled

Bourne

(after the films)

some unholy myth of achievement
rat champion of every maze
we wish you well in your bereavement
reborn we know our loss of face
