So I just watched Guardians of the Galaxy. While you might argue that there is no real poetry in a superhero movie, I would point to the self-growing house plant, Groot, who saves the day many times, and the genetically-warped raccoon, Rocket, who masterminds most of their plans.
It may not be epic poetry, but it is poetry.
And also, I have now stuck in my head all week, “Stuck on a Feeling,” from Blue Swede 1974. I had always thought it was Tom Jones’s song. Whoops.
Hm. I better rent Guardians. You know, for the poetry.
