Film Studies

In the movie,
the woman lived
in a lighthouse.

An island populated
by one: the ships
came, the rocks

devoured. All
died: men of sixty,
boys of twelve.


Over the imaginary line
he would not extend himself.
He could not extend himself.

The risk was too great.
The risk is too great.
He left as the credits rolled

and he went home
to watch her.
