“Double Feature” will intrigue readers by its mystery. Apparently the action begins as a movie ends. In fact, a Review Editor says that the poem is reminiscent of Edward Hopper’s painting, New York Movie.
As in the poem, the film itself is of no interest. The usherette is not a redhead or leprechaun but a blonde. Rather, she might be a movie star, and her pensive pose makes the viewer wonder what she might be thinking. In that way, at least, the painting and poem coincide.
