san francisco
a film festival in 7 haiku poems
by jason gilmore (@JasonGilmore77)
6.20.07
film


1.
A summer of love
Summer has been gone for years
Dad died one summer

2.
Posters printed up
Credit debt flows like oceans
Do I look nervous?

3.
Soaring with the birds
Trenekia and Tabitha
San Jose is green

4.
Film before ours safe
Want it to end yet really don't
What if they boo me?

5.
Crowd is warm and smart
They chuckle and understand
Still I find things wrong

6.
Writer smiles now
Director wants two more takes
Producer loves both

7.
Dinner with old friends
Spicy Thai food leaves full gut
Bay Bridge takes us home

Hey I dig this piece
Lots of luck with your movie
Knocking on some wood

You've worked hard on this
And you pass the blessings on
Thus, success is yours

Rock on, Jason!

Can't do haiku
for the life of me
just isn't in the DNA.

See? One too many or one too few.

I'm touched that people actually wrote back in haiku.

Obligated to
Do so in haiku for you
So it all stays true

When you make it big in Hollywood
We'll cheer you from this neighborhood.
(I don't know haiku,
So this thing might do.)
(I giggle when Alex says "some wood.")

Free titillation
