̊24 ̊Ƒrames

 ̊24 ̊Ƒrames


I could cast myself, every feature,
moving through you
around, in, and to you
through film. One lens, and your two eyes
can easily find me

in a frame, or stepping out
to entertain
friends filming 24 frames per second, lenses
tease parts of me.
What if they miss?

Frame me, then move on
me, tame me to the sideline
and frame on, to milometer eaters
and cinema tier isle-feeders
watching film sleepers.

I never film right.
I am long where long drags on
and tight where thought’s don’t flow, drift off =
two lines,
my brow caught,

fraught, in a momentary 24 frame shot
from you, spot on too.
I Love this multi-frame movie lens
we watch each other through.

    Go blu butterfliiiieessss!

    I am still thinking on ‘tame me to the sideline and frame on…’
    It’s the sequence of words… miss-frame-me-move-on-me-tame-me-to-the-sideline-and-frame-on
    This is one of those out-of-reach poems for me, that I keep struggling to put meaning to. Too much personal stuff in the way probably.

    • another missed comment… Think of rejection, it should fall into place.

      • WilderSoul says:

        I thought of rejection, and then the last two lines had me confused – if rejected, why does he “love” the lens they watch each other through? 🙂 Glad you found the comment – I puzzled over this poem!

  2. Bastet says:

    A wonderful song and dance, from frame to frame, until the end when each watches through the lens…

    You have already gotten much love for the first line. Personally I liked this bit “I am long where long drags on
    and tight where thought’s don’t flow, drift off “

  4. Ar Vhee says:

    Oow (out of words)..
    I super like the first line…. 🙂

  5. Where did you come from? You Swooner you!

  6. Lovely lovely take on panning through the landscape of someone’s life 🙂

  7. Incredible! First verse had me. Wow. Must thank AV for inspiration (smiles)
