Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)



*The Princess Cinema in Waterloo shows mainly art films,
butevery year it shows the International Television Commercial
Awards and they are awesome. Some make you cry.
Some are stunningly beautiful. Some are thought-provoking.
And some are just very touching.

Your brows are up. The Princess Cinema
is not your choice. C'mon, I don't fit here,
you snort. You, with all your charisma 
and kindness, stand in a short line, fearing

boredom or worse ... pretense. Promise me,
that we aren't about to wallow through
subtitles, you sigh.  Give me clarity,
a story, something that I can relate to.

But the charm catches you by surprise,
a star-struck atmosphere, the seats are new
and the popcorn is still warm. Friendly eyes
laugh, then amusement streams from you

for these Global TV spots simply delight
like each snippet that you joyfully write.

    THis is wonderful, Cyndi! Your sonnet is unpretentious, which is how I see myself. However, I have to tell you that my favorite theater is the Broadway in Salt Lake. It's the only place where I can catch film festival type movies that are not the "usual" Hollywood brand movies. I love all kinds of movies. You are right that I do not like the really artsy fartsy ones but I do not mind subtitles at all!! FAVE! (I would love this show you noted at the bottom of the poem)
