Head Film Noir #4

Whether he’s an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye travels in feelings, not in thoughts.

— Walker Evans

can’t ignore a midnight audience that relaxes

by hindsight/ & losing five from time to time/

& Mad Poet’s directing a script by someone’s

divine intervention/ by midnight mood & dark

jokes/ revised by mr. special fx & dr. be early/

convincing close-up & vertiginous dolly zoom/

he’s holding better when you watch it a second

time/ & she’s that special she cooks up stories

like what’s about to appear to him/ but nobody

is listening – – –
