an ear against your

an ear against your
chest and images from
tonight’s viewing of
the latest Underworld
in the franchise
beneath my eyelids, i
am once again
wondering whose
heart will stop
beating first, and
would the one that
continues alone be okay
with succumbing to
such guilty pleasures

you are watching the

you are watching the
latest martial arts darling
in asian cinema, something
enigmatic, poetic,
reserved, i am wavering
between accepting and
rejecting myself for not
being as intoxicated,
enraptured by this
exotic intrigue.
there is a fine pretense
between belonging and
not belonging, i can’t
solve for the variables
while holding myself
at arm’s length

at the movies, we

at the movies, we
recognize that life’s
choices are both
limited and
vast, juggling
blockbusters with
something to chew on

the difference between

the difference between
me and you
is cinematic –
when the opening
credits roll and an
invisible band begins
to build logarithmic
rapport with 500-watt
surround, we can
sit back and fall
for the disparities
or find ways to
unplug the system,
update the user
experience

in theory, anyone

in theory, anyone
can get love in the
afternoon
, though in
application, no one
can promise the soft
focus filter with that
Audrey Hepburn
pluck, the universal
haziness that comes
with heartfelt
synapses and
flustered triggers

on the eve of your

on the eve of your
thirty-ninth
birthday, i pull
Bleu from the
shelf and give it
a spin – after
eight and a
half years, it is
good to know
that there are
some things
one can
count on

when Kanji Watanabe

when Kanji Watanabe
walks through rain
and loneliness, body long
numb, mind
unflappable, we
extend sympathy
like a handkerchief, a loose
gesture, twisting in mid-air

when Takeshi Shimura
sits on the swing and starts
Gondola no uta, eyes still
flickering, mind
unflappable, we
pull down our
sleeves, an inescapable
gesture, a gloveless sting
