Movie projectors

After I John 4:7-12

We are movie projectors,
humming as the film is fed
into us or the pixels
permeate circuits and lines
in the glow, the light,
the light begins to shine
from within, the audience
isn’t focused on the projector
behind but on the screen
in front as the reflection,
the illumination,
the Codex Filmaticus,
appears. It is the light within
the projector that glimmers
to the screen, wrapped and
colorized, beauty filled
with surprise and wonder.
