slow west

We were warned before it began.

I was no stranger to violence,

but brief language,


the thought was terrifying!

This would require focus,

deep concentration,

and that dreaded virtue


Brief language, of course

was a blunder!

Brief nudity

was the intention.

Both were in abundance.


the movie did not


“Slow West” was both

slow and filmed in the West

with a warning label

that had me laughing



Post Script: This poem was inspired by the Netflix movie, Slow West. The movie picture rating actually said, “Rated R for violence and brief language”
