Kick the Can

by Maw Shein Win

That utopian moment
when the film begins
& the sound spins,
awash in honey & blood,
saliva & wine.
Let’s kick the can!
Alive in the eye of projection,
variations of pink on aqua.
In Icelandic they say “invisible.”
In Spanish they say “as blissful.”
Amplify echo of heart.
Modulate cadence of brain.
Cinematic monuments to spent desire.
A flash of eternity in the ecstasy grid
