Give Me a Good Old Movie


rainy this morning
and the birds spring crazy
raze hell outside the open window

clouded coffee sweet with nostalgia
it’s a perfect day for TCM
something black and white
with throwback politics
simple as the color scheme

a mystery, straight up
or noir on the rocks
I’ll take a musical or a western
with commentary on the side

just give me the old ones today
with names I barely remember
and snappy dialogue
the kind you never hear these days
save in parody and big city coffee joints
