Storyboard Text

  • I ask them to take a poem and hold it up to the light like a color slide
  • I say drop a mouse into a poem and watch him probe his way out
  • or walk inside the poem's room and feel the walls for a light switch
  • I want them to waterski across the surface of a poem waving at the author's name on the shore
  • Billy Collins
  • But all they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it
  • The End
  • They begin beating it with a hose to find out what it really means
