(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...
