Red Background Closeup

To the movies
We fled
Every weekend
Afternoon
On 99 to Eugene
And a theater
In the church
With parmesan
Popcorn
Creaky little
Seats
David Lynch-ian red
Curtains
Draping the walls
You
Me
And everyone
We didn’t
Know
All eyes
Aligned
Light of Earth-bound
Stars
Grainy art stock
Film
Dialog
Strange and funny
Like our sideways
Glances
Meeting between his line
And her’s
Our fingers
Met
Slick with parmesan
Butter

  1. Hi! Wow, the structure of your poem reminds me of those mysterious indie films… The kind that you really have to unravel but holds a lot of implicit meaning… Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
