“Imaginary Bird”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Alex Soloviev (2018)

“Imaginary Bird” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film in Rome Featuring Poet Charles Bukowski Directed By Alex Soloviev.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Alex Soloviev

Music by Jimmy Svensson / Artlist

Poem Read by: Tom O’Bedlam

“This poem is quite personal. It took much time to find way to visualize it. Dark and light parts of this video have a very special meaning.

We don our masks and our everyday armor, afraid of being found out. Afraid of being taken less seriously, as if happiness were a stain in our otherwise pristine, unbreakable facade. We hide our real selves away – our weak points and vulnerabilities. Until the time we can finally be ourselves again. Until we can finally breathe again. When no one else is looking.

The fact that from around a million to 5 millions of starlings choose the city of Rome as their wintering ground might appear as a blessing or just inspiration when you observe it. It remains one of the world’s greatest natural phenomena.”

“Bluebird” by Charles Bukowski

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.

then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?
