filmism is changing tack

films are getting me down. from now on i'm going to intersperse poems between rare reviews. something didactic to start with.


PC’s not even a police force

inspiring a quick hit the lights
here comes the principal type
of don’t show & tell

Geez dead end streets
suburban sprawls
the shy stand-offish torches
of a tarmac night
must make policework impossible

the young & slacker-naturally enlightened
are forced into Orwellian son &
daughter assumptions, draconic
detectives accidentally questing
to get riled every time
old farts slip up. Plain-clothed
in my DUI time tend to pose
a more appalling fear anyway

So keep a siren in yr oversized
pockets, partner to what narcotics
& confusing technology
& never a photo of wrong-headed
antecedents. We will inherit
an earth parsimonious in its
open-heartedness, pathetic
in its brick veneer of ignorance.
What we bring is implicitness,
a seen-it-all-before self-evidence,
a wisdom dating back to that
Thomas Jefferson lost
in yr bullshit gossip columns.
