Two Poems in the New Year


My image is like that of a movie projected onto a screen in front of an audience. Behind the screen you might find a few old chairs, a mouse, and some dust. But if you watch from the front, walking towards you, admiring the distance as it closes, you might fall in love if you are a lover of movies.

What is the opposite of sitting in a church?

Sitting in a church
Sitting in a bar drinking a beer
Sitting in hell
Flying through hell
Sitting in a fountain eating a bird raw
Sitting in a patch of flowers
