Talking Pictures

Today’s poetry writing month stamp is an older one commemorating the anniversary of motion pictures. Movies, news, television shows, YouTube videos have grown and changed. This stamp-poem has us pause and think about our viewing choices and how they might affect us.

Talking Pictures

Talking pictures
A way to entertain
Influence culture,
fashion, morality.

A movie is a little experience.
Do they affect our psyche?
Are we traumatized by
movie trauma, news trauma?
Are we desensitized?
Are we inspired to action
or the inaction of couch time?

Like food we put into our bodies,
there are healthy shows to ingest
and ones that
skew our romantic expectations,
justify our biases,
fuel or worries and depression,
uplift and gift us with happy laughter.

So, eat your veggies,
walk in nature,
be grateful,
and choose your viewage wisely.
