BLACK & WHITE MOVIE

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

I watched

“To Have and Have Not”

on AMC last night.

 

Whenever I watch

the old black and white movies

I end up getting the imagery 

from the film 

seeping into my dreams.

 

Scenes from the movies 

replay in my unconscious mind

haunting me and drawing me

back to the film.

 

 

So I had 

19 year old Lauren Bacall

prancing around in my dreams.

 

Son of a bitch!

Amazingly,

 I was able to wake up

and get dressed 

and make it to work.

 

It was a good night

Although I was exhausted

And I’m pretty sure

I don’t want to be 

putting my lips together

and blowing.
