    This is amazing. For some reason it reminds me of Aki Kaurismäki. You nail it with the bird.

    An American Dream

    I sped downhill
    against the grain
    of others’
    uphill travel, then,

    When once I
    righted with the globe,
    flat to ground
    did heart unfold.

    Like Maynard Dixon
    had been there
    alone, standing, pure, aware.

    None but one bird,
    and black at that,
    brought movement
    to the air.

    Moving video, Kristian. And I think Uncle Jimmy really “got” it.

    I sped downhill
    against the grain
    of others’
    uphill travel,

    When once I
    righted with the world,
    flat to ground
    dreams revealed,

    That Maynard Dixon
    had been there.
    His land his sky,
    colors do aver.
    .
    Naught but one bird,
    and black at that,
    brought movement
    to the air.
