In The World Today

I read an interview with a young poet today
(He is not so young at 31 years old)
He said that he is present in some form
in most of the poetry today
I liked that and thought it was a prerogative
for a young poet
The young poet lives in a small town
where, according to him, culture thrives
Denizens dress up and go to
cultural events; they participate and
run their refined palettes over
coarse poems and smooth prose
rub them carefully between fingers
and bring to the equally refined noses to discriminate
I liked that even more – the small town
on the outskirts of the world
with robust appetite for culture
(I am developing a taste for small towns)
Then he was asked a question about his other passions
and he said that there was one thing
a reputation, if you wish – he likes older women
Older by a year, or by twenty
His range is like his presence in poetry
and the culture of his town –
far-reaching and unbridled
I liked that the best
Mostly because I could imagine
the proud folk of the town
reading the interview
of their talented son
and nodding in agreement
as if all is well with the world

O jednom filmu

Zove se ‘Once’, ili ‘Jednom’. Meni ga je preporucila prijateljica i nista nije htela da kaze o samoj prici, samo da moram da ga vidim, pa tako cu i ja ovde onima koji svrate – obavezno ga pogledajte.

U potrazi za nekim informacijama o filmu dok premisljam da li da ista dodam (napravljen u Irskoj, desava se u Dablinu), nasla sam na Wikipediji sledece: „A little movie called Once gave me enough inspiration to last the rest of the year.“ Ovo se pripisuje Spilbergu, i mada mnogi ne veruju Wikipediji ja verujem da bi Spilberg rekao ovako nesto, jer je film naprosto prekrasan.

Ima u njemu za svakoga da se prepozna. Mozda najmanje za americki mentalitet, ali eto ako je Spilberg tako nesto rekao, i jos je na Sundance festivalu dobro primljen, ima nade za sve nas.

U detaljima je stos. (Uvek i jeste, zar ne?) A u ovoj prici ih ima puno. Skupa sa glupim situacijama, i zivotnim okolnostima koje idu uzvodno pa pravo u nos. Ma ima svega! Najvise osecaja pravosti. (Pravo, kao nepatvoreno.) Na filmu? To nije mala stvar. Nije ni stvar, vec umetnost.
