Alfred Hitchcock’s VERTIGO

LIGHT IN AUGUST

The pattern of leaves on this green
concrete
floor
calls to mind that scene in the forest

where he watches her tracing
the
rings
in the cross-section of the cut tree: here I

was born, there I died. It was just a
moment
for
you, you took no notice. Her eyes move

from the wood to his face, a
swivel
of
magnetism on hidden rails. And she

glides past him through the ancient trees
and
the
heavy drapes of string-wrapped woodwinds.

I remember he seems to stand there
watching
her
move away for a very long time before

he
tries
catching
up.

17 August 1998
