Author Phillip Reisner has been seeing movies and writing poetry in his head his entire life, from his childhood years on a midwestern farm to his first venture out in the world as an adult. He learned efficiency of thought, action, and description from his father, who was a man of few words. His poetry collection, I See Movies in My Head takes place over a period of twenty years, beginning before Phillip gained self-awareness and coming up to a point of true-life realization.
Phillip remembers his life experiences through movies in his head and poetically describes his personal history of growing up. His innocence is pure early in his life, but living gradually chips away with personal awareness and worldliness. Concise and to the point, the free-verse poems of I See Movies in My Head seek to remind us that simplicity teaches while complexity awaits understanding.
I wish I could go back in time with more than organic films in my head, and feel sweet, special and innocent again. I wish I could be six years old again, and ignorantly unique without worldly knowledge to clutter my heart, mind, and soul.
