POETRY

...but I don't mean poetry in the literary sense. I mean communication that transcends the limitations of the medium. Lyricism with the camera, a moment on stage that makes you ache. Seeing the invisible. Listening to images. Speaking what words can not. Marcello Mastroianni shouting to the girl on the beach in the final moments of La Dolce Vita.

That is the poetry for which we can strive.
