Merry Christmas!

In the year end battle, Ilic comes by carrying a Christmas gift to you all. The poets are directed to respond to a film by Charley Bowers entitled “Now You Tell One”. A silent film that tells a story of a man named Bricolo who has a violin box containing branches and when they are grafted, they will surely grow all of his desires. This film is chosen because Bowers film “combined live action” with the highly sophisticated “Bowers Process” of stop-motion animation—and that there were no limits on Charley’s imagination, which was as fertile and unchecked as the monstrously grafted plants he nurtures in Now You Tell One (1926)”
The film has been reviewed by Andre Breton in 1937. As of Bright Light Film Journal article have reported:

“In the 1950 Surrealist Almanac, André Breton listed for each year the films that had made the greatest impression on him. For 1937, he cited It’s a Bird, by the American comedian and animator Charley Bowers.1 Breton, who in the 1923 Surrealist Manifesto wrote of his hope that the imagination might be on the point of reasserting itself, “in the absence of any control exercised by reason,” and who declared that “only the marvelous is beautiful,” probably felt like a piker beside Bowers. It’s a Bird, the only sound film in which Bowers appeared, follows pure dream logic; as Breton wrote: “the mind of the man that dreams is fully satisfied by what happens to him. The agonizing question of possibility is no longer pertinent.” (as cited in Smith, Imogen Sara “Forgotten Charleys 1: Charles Bowers: Silent Comedy Wizard”, 2010, para 2) http://brightlightsfilm.com/forgotten-charleys-i-charley-bowers-silent-comedys-wizard-of-the-bizarre/#.VKN0Zr_ucoY)

Gerakan dalam semu.
memintas mencari makna.
tak jelas kucoba meramu,
bukankah ini prilaku memaknai jemu

Moving in apparent.
bypassing the search for meaning.
I tried to mix it in obscure
Is this not to interpret
the behavior of boredom?

for the sake of happiness

  1. Hanya diam
    Hanya lihai tangan yang menari menelusuri sudut demi sudut ruang itu
    Kuukir keheningan menjadi kebahagiaan

    Masih tanpa suara
    Semua dalam kesenyapan
    Menikmati ekspresinya
    Merasuki jiwaku untuk mengaguminya

    Aku pun masih diam
    Menyadari anugerah besar telah mengitari di setiap sudut mataku
