Cracked Film

If I cannot dream in any other hue,

Then stretched upon my eyes sticks a blue film,

Therefore my cornea cracks and shatters

Because irises trick both the fake and true.

Mind Movies

Mind movies in Kodachrome
and vibrant technicolour 
set to rewind
Whenever shades of negative
dampen the spirit
and plague the mind.

Short Film poem by Duffy Laudick| Details |


My mind is a jumble

like an old black and white film

scratched and jumping around

with bad narration and too many shadows

and a scream for help in the distance

with a gun shot echo.

a thin film of pride
scorn'd by the green and vintage
merlot dialogues
coagulated thoughts, make
growing pains turn arthritic

If I never learn to take will I grow?

Too Many Heroes

My walls reveal my mind

How it thinks

Faces make better cling film

Black and white portraits of adulation

Make me feel alive...

Heart of Paris

all a romance in the heart of Paris 

all a mystery without desire 

all a lost phantasm 

all a film of being 

where art is in the spiritual thread 

so that every love to be eternal

Eternal blue

need to know where to look? soft

and the body to film 

and soul for the soul 

and the spirit of the infinite

Short Film poem by Sophie Leggett| Details |


A chill runs through my spine

As the surface breaks

The world goes quiet

I am in a silent film

Watching the faces that appear above me

Watching the world go by

Until I run out of breath

I am safe here

    In the water

Short Film poem by David Byrne| Details |


Sorrow numbs 

The mind like

Paste in cling film

Nothing can


You squeeze it

With your thumb

All over shapeless


I know how a heavy 

Heart feels _ no

Pep in the step

I cant imagine you

Anymore !

the greatest story ever told

think of the major events of your life 


imagine them as if they were 


scenes from a film. 


now, replace yourself with Andy Dick. 


this is your story 


coming soon to a K-Mart bargain bin 


near you

Bubble Bath

Soaked in a transparent skin
Float vaulted orbs of H2O
'till a tactile object like a pin
Burst these film lined embryo
But, Oh! What fun 
Kids have at play
In a bathtub full of bubbles
Washing built up dirt away
As well as daily troubles

Short Film poem by George Aul| Details |

Four Jacks

That was something unexplained that I saw:
Paul Newman was playing poker against Robert Shaw.
Robert Shaw had four nines, and was happy to stand.
How did Paul Newman get four jacks in his hand?

Short Film poem by Gert W. Knop| Details |



appearing with frosty silence

becomes engulfed

in the valley of dreams,



a continuous film

of whirling silence,


with past and future.

The  night 

has its own tunes

of hidden and restless 


Short Film poem by Jack Jordan| Details |

Come to Me Dusk

Come to me dusk, come shy, 
change to the silent night of 
almost light of a waning moon 
sifted through scudding dragon clouds 
soft as your body, 
the blue film of hush,
perfumes whispered blush, 
shadow damp kisses and 
blessed sweet darkness.

Short Film poem by Natalie Vee| Details |

memory on a couch.

some one told me this piece of him:

that his mind fills every day with

images of his body,

ripped and destroyed,

on freeways,

in fires-

without emotion or reverie.

flying off cliffs

with no head and

bleeding genitals-

a daily silent film.

Short Film poem by Constantinos Grigoriadis| Details |

As at the cinema

The life made a film just for me 

was my producer. 

I was the actor and the creator. 

I created every day as my last one. 

The end of the film was unknown...

Precisely as at the cinema

Love Note to Mona L

Oh how your smile got to me

Mona, it just has to be

As I painted your face

My heart skipped in place

Be mine signed Yours, Leonard D.

Short Film poem by Dan Keir| Details |

Picture Perfect

Take a picture. 
Halfway between, two extremes, film exposed to light; 
Corrupt or cleansed, shaking hands, or about to fight. 

Make a picture. 
Roll film right back, start again, I am what you see.
More film to load, left alone, so many stills to be.
