Brigitte Helm, on the set of Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis', 1927





we speak in narratives 

there might be 
velvet, bone 
petal, bark 
or skin 'tween each
of our iron chores...

each of our conversations 
is another script telling 
of tomorrow's scenes...

yesterday is
going to be 
re-imagined
re-animated 
re-purposed
and revised...

every eyed lie
will still tell 
today's truths 
however...

(nourishment will be taken standing)
