More Poems from 'I Spy Pinhole Eye'

Visible to anyone in the world

(Saccades: rapid tracking movements of the human eye, unnoticed by the brain, between one fixed image and the next)


The people of Saccadia

are backroom boys.
See them crouched

to their exposures in the darkroom plotting a map, or a plot for an invasion, motionless

as Cortes, at each moment on the brink
Of breakthrough to another world of which their one-frame stories tell

like a whole new dimension.
Oh, to be in - no-  to be the movies...
