BY1 - Here, There



Saturday, January 9, 2010

The cinematography in the recently-release film A Single Man is excellent, and the cinematographer's use of color, in particular, appealed to me.

Here, the room was full, minds filling with words. There, the room was empty, as far as the man was concerned.

Here, the man's mind employed trickery, and the adversary let his guard down. There, the man's heart would be true, but hers would be guarded.

Here, the man lost, his mistake was clear. But it was, after all, only a game. There, reality. Were a mistake made, the man might not know.

Here, the man destroyed the adversary with nary a care, for there is where the man had his hopes.

Here, the adversary wolfed the good tiles. There, the clock neared the magic hour, the driver drove on.

Here, the mythical woodland creature found his song devoid of magic, his orange smile faded. There, a smile!

Here, the adversary had not learned from the past, the man exploited his weakness. There, a good start.

Here, the adversary's comeback was stifled. There, success marched on.

Here, the adversary was forgiven his mistake, his cup ranneth over from a golden touch, and the man was cheated of his prize. There, success marched on!

Here, the man wished he were there.
