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.
