FACE

I saw a movie with the word “angel.”
Because I did, the computer said
I should see five other movies.

The first had a man frowning
at a woman in a blue shadow.

The second had a couple kissing
while a man made a telephone call
holding a gun.

The third had a woman watching a canoe
plunge over the rapids and she was wearing
a tight red dress.

The fourth had an unhappy man
in a trench coat hiding in the alley.

The fifth looked so depressing
I don’t want to even talk about it.

The movies had these words in them:
“ends”, “dark”, “no return”, “foreign”,
“danger.” What’s the matter with me?

I used to like things.

I like the third one most:

The third had a woman watching a canoe
plunge over the rapids and she was wearing
a tight red dress.


I want to hug the persona of your poem - I hope that will make him like things again.

Oh the last stanza is lovely.
