Father Time and the Adventures into the Cinematic Sublime

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world she walks into mine!

Kitty and the movie-land Walter Mitty!

Old Movie to VHS Tape Mastermind!

Thespian roles by Humphrey Bogart

James Cagney

Errol Flynn

The Zorro Serials

King Kong (original)

Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce)

Along with instructions on the exploits of Babe Ruth

Joe Dimaggio (The Greatest)

Mickey Mantle

And dissecting and prospecting New York Yankees games!

Television moments to wonder at Pop’s sudden display of emotions!

Windows through time into his personality

Thoughts and notions!

He would invite you to watch the early film masterpieces

And suddenly become emotive and outspoken!

Tears would flow down his cheeks!

As he opened up inside!

I could hear his mind opine!

The subtext of Don Joseph Reith’s greatest dreams

And reality intertwined

Whereas generally these displays of expressive reaction

From Pops

Were hard to find!

The inability to show his feelings were a tell-tale sign

Of his Silent Generation Silver Screen times

These classics seemed dipped with a magic psychosomatic potion

Here was the solitary place Father

Would enter into the world

His wildest dreams unfurled

Inside the cinematic sublime
