another polar vortex day
another movie adventure
four neighborhood kids
lots of action
lots of adventure.
“you never forget the neighborhood kids you grew up with.”
in the midst of the polar vortex
a call goes out
a friend offers to drive us all to the movies
preston- holding down the fort at the theater
sells us popcorn, beverages, and tickets
menu offers a movie combo of cocktails and popcorn
the movie was great
the company was great
felt like we were skipping school
to just have a day of fun
we forgot about the polar vortex outside
we laughed and cried
we’ll never tell who chose which beverage:
coffee, tall soda, sippy-cup ‘o wine.
choose your own adventure.
everyone needs someone who will call them and say,
“get dressed, we’re going on an adventure.”
when my girls were young
we went on a matinee date
to see a dollar movie in 3d
everyone was so excited
the popcorn and sweet treats
the movie started
the cardboard 3d glasses
kept coming off
i finally used their barrettes
to attach them
right to their hair
greasy popcorn hands
made smears all over the lenses
sticky candy stuff
got on their hair
it got tangled
there were spills
the movie was bad
at least one started crying
no one could see
out of their magic glasses
a lot of
it was not
what we expected
but we had
3d action adventure
right in our little row
none the less
a heck of a lot of entertainment
for just a buck.
a mind that is stretched by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions.

what is an antipode?
two places diametrically opposite each other on the earth’s surface.
they are very rare.
what is the shortest route between them?
a straight line through the center of the earth.
i recently saw ‘vivan las antipodas’
released in 2011
directed by russian documentary maker
who had a radical idea
to visit these places
and shoot four antipodal pairs:
he filmed it in a way
turned the world
and back again
for 108 meandering minutes
i was blown away
by the beauty
some things are universal
