Poem of the Day #9

Filmstrip Genre

What do they know in New York
about "Understanding Your Love Feelings"
the name of the filmstrip we watch as poets.
Projector with strips of film
rolled, plastic see-through, teacher with wooden pointer
on the screen.
A kid in class mimics the 'beep' sound perfectly
causing the teacher to get confused, advance the strip
all wrong.    She asks us, is this fact or fiction?
Shout your answers.  Here in the 'Burque we don't know,
we say faction.

Thanks to Jenette for the filmstrip session at last night's East of Edith and for Mitch for the story about the kid.
