the word "focus" becomes a movie star

        for Tom Beckett

what was hearth
gave heat to Kepler

its rays spread

words in a row
like Busby's chorines
till one
steps out of line

focus on the figure
fake coins sewn
on bodysuit

third girl from left
becomes Kim Novak

I pluck "focus"
from Tom's sentence

a star is born

not since that
dirty joke
from junior high
has "focus"
scored like this

it clutches
its breast
walks into
the spotlight
to shimmer
