Long Shot Odyssey

Walter Bruno

[In this work, the poet returns to Paris, the center of his memories. He confronts the building where his lover, once a lusty youth, is now a married man with children. He tries to put this man into some sort of framework. But his lover, a cameraman, has always controlled the "frame." The lover now takes command of the shots. Flashbacks take us into the memory bank of both men in a variety of risky settings. In the end, the poet finds a fixed position from which to view this experience. -- W.B.]
