POETRY
Poem Made of Netflix Movie Descriptions
by William Lessard
Writer of the Month

Acerbic outbursts. Visions
of a dead woman with cake.
A brother's revenge. A weary
shoe repairman becomes
a saint. She spent her life
preparing. A new age of
villains calls for old-school
heroes. Religion. Family.
Supremacy. He set out for
Space, then took a detour.
Murders so gruesome, they
make no sense. No problem.
This monkey can make friends
anywhere.
