Between Hollywood and War

(a poem I found in an old journal)

dripping espresso machine, 9am
drinking coffee with grounds, 4am

a sunny beach with paparazzi
a shot between the eyes, waterfront

a close up
blood coming out of the nostrils

a martini glass
a Molotov cocktail

An Oscar
A Purple Heart

three stage hands bring only red M&M's
five nurses tend sixty-six soldiers

Again, suggestions? I found this one; it pulled some strings, but I don't know what to do with it.

Do you need to do anything with it? I like it how it is, the quickfire stream of images, it's like a minifilm.
