Movie Reel

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Movie Reel


Standing in the shower, staring blankly at the wall

Feels like time is frozen

Water gently streaming down

So peaceful and -


Fuck, someone said, “Action”.

My mind’s so loud -

Now a movie reel on a constant loop

Who clicked play?

Fuck, is this groundhog day?

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Every memory.

No desire to watch this again.

I’m so lucky, I was front row,

For the original show.

No control,

Flashbacks running through

Whose directing this movie?

The screams, the thoughts, the memories

Please just make them stop.

Fuck, someone just yell, “Cut.”

-H.M. Jackson
