Poetry should be as simple as possible, but no simpler (as Einstein may have almost said)

Wings of Desire
In the comments section a few posts back Alan Summers mentioned a film - Wings of Desire -that I hadn't seen and alerted to me something quite wonderful. The script is made up in large part of the poetry of Peter Handke, much of which shares the spirit of haiku and related forms. I also found this essay, Angels and the Modern City by Eric Mader Lin, on the symbolism of the film. All links well worth following.
...Normal poetry will be resumed following this cinematic break...
