Poetry in motion


Last week I saw the film Man On Wire and as I was leaving the theatre I said to a poet friend of mine, "There was a lot of poetry in that film," to which a non-poet friend replied, "Now, what would you write from that?" And while surely Man On Wire could inspire some good verse, I did not mean that I could write a lot of poetry after seeing it, I meant simply that the film itself was poetic. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Philippe Petit's "high wire act" was all an elaborate hoax. Just like the "moon landing."
