Poems on Film

Tim McLafferty

Back of Man at Jamaica Ave.
Gelatin Silver Print

In his big winter coat,
leaning on one crutch,
throwing crumbs

to the pigeons at his feet.


Midtown: Early Winter
Gelatin Silver Print

With graying hair,
leather bag in hand,

the priest walks down
Seventh Avenue,
a beautiful woman

to his right,
in step, separate.


Seoul: Chong-Lo Samga
Film: Hand-Held 16mm, 14 Seconds

At the crosswalk
in bitter cold,
the old woman

sells gum and candy
from her pocket,
ignored, mostly.
