Poetry: The Strand Theater

 

The Strand Theater of Old Forge

Rising from the bottom of an
unfillable sink of inside space,
the Strand Theater is a Mondrian;
its meanings come rushing over
hazy filters of digital luminescence:
a cosmology of sound and light,
blasting gigantic sweeping images,
like felled hemlocks on a forest floor.

    Just wanted to tell you your ideas for the Rochester -Toronto ferry are great. Was looking into a way to attend a Maple Leafs game w/out driving 4 & 1/2 hrs from Utica & to my surprise, there was not a way straight across the lake! Absolutely crazy.
