Radio Carbon shorts #19

The film poem Radio Carbon was premiered at the Renoir cinema in 2009 as part of the wonderful Zata Banks’ Poetryfilm.org‘s regular screenings, and at Port Eliot Festival in 2010.

The complete 27-minute film comprises 24 numbered sections, and may be viewed as a sequence of separate, interlocking filmpoems with recurring motifs.

For this winter, I have broken up the film into 24 parts and will be posting them day by day as we approach the winter solstice, in the style of an advent calendar. Each one is between 45 and 90 seconds each. So start your day with a few drops of imagery …

Here is the eighteenth film poem, Explosive

 

Explosive

Love’s weightless
origami carries the body
to forbidden places,
the heart packed tight
like explosive in a bomber’s
vest, a one man army
travelling west, the road
filled with fallen wings,
heavy buds on the lips
of the faithful, the long
dark thread in the blood
unravelling from
the first exploded atoms
of our coming.
