May the Fourth be With You -4/05/2014


Though it's unclear anymore
whom shot at who first

though I can't see it
exactly the same way
I saw it as a young kid

though today I saw
a young kid's mother
obsessed with the gunfire
and ignoring the story
for it's actual content

and although, yes
the bulk of the material now
comprises more of evil
than of good-

I still love Star Wars

It's spectacle and scale
fired my imagination as a child

it's action and visual design
captivated me as a teenager

while it's filmic styling
and mythological underpinnings
inspire me as an adult

The force will be with you
