SOFT RIOT

CINEMA EYES

16 August 2012

FADE INTO, FADE INTO WITH A PIN OF LIGHT
RED LIPS SHINE, RED LIPS SHINE IN A HIGH DEF STYLE
TURN ONTO ANGLED MODELS POSED ON WHITE TILES
CUT TO NEWS, TOP STORY WAS THE LIVE OF HER LIFE
TEARS LIKE DEW, TEARS LIKE DEW FROM THOSE CINEMA EYES
SHE ACTS HER REACTION TO…

THOSE SCENES YOU SEE ARE CUT TO CARRY YOU AWAY
THOSE SCENES YOU SEE HAVE CRACKS THAT STOP YOU,
PAUSE AND WONDER ABOUT THEM
WHAT’S BEHIND THAT MIRROR?

WHAT’S ON AT 2:00? FIVE ON AN ISLAND COMPETE FOR A PRIZE
PIN FOCUS, NOT SEEING THE WHOLE PICTURE IN TIME
A MAN-MADE MOON NEVER CROSSED HER MIND
LIKE ARCANE NOTES IN A VONNEGUT STYLE
STILL LONGS WITH, STILL LONGS WITH CINEMA EYES
SHE ACTS HER REACTION TO…
