BUSTELO COFFEE CAN CROWDFUNDING

bustelo coffee can crowdfunding

it’s come to this
on one two five with a bustelo can
looking for change
taking the kind that makes noise
but preferring the kind that folds
going straight to the source
for support
straight to the audience
straight to the people

i dreamt a film for them
it breaks our hearts
makes us cry
knocks us down
then picks us up and binds us
but it takes faith to pre-purchase
what doesn’t yet exist
and faith must be mined

i dreamt of a making a film
and like everything else
one could possibly want
it wound up
in a pawnshop shelf window
with a ticket
how many know of the admission
ticket just to make a film

how are such absurdities conveyed
certainly not in a walking moment
wearing a black sandwich board
with white letters that says
MAKE THIS PAWN$HOP DREAM COME TRUE
on one side and
MAKE THIS PAWN$HOP DREAM A REALITY
on the other

so i’m in the mine
on one two five digging for faith
shaking a bustelo coffee can
but coming up empty
and wondering what the difference is between
the mumbling mad man
rummaging through a garbage can
and me on one two five with a coffee can
