A post-cinema politic (a poem)

About a movie but not.

Pre-war
kitsch

Post-war
roots exposed, thirsty

The present moment
elaborate fiction

wounded
confused

outlines colorless
and unfilled

the bright, shining moment
blurred and murky

In this set piece
nothing exists under the spotlight

no glory
only shadow

The other side of the wall
