Poem – Notes Upon Viewing (By JD DeHart)
Notes Upon Viewing
The still-frame, captured
eye, I do not ask permission
to see. When I enter the theater,
I simply view.
The camera takes me where
I want to go, high in the air where
I have never been. Up and down the
side of a skyscraper. Into the mouth
of a problem.
Image, sound, life,
deformed, resembled, what I feel
and yet not.
