A play disguised as a film flirts with becoming a poem.

BUSTER KEATON’S RIDE BUSTER KEATON RIDES AGAIN: A SEQUEL is a response to reading Jack Spicer’s poems which are a response to Lorca’s plays which are a response to Buster Keaton’s silent films. The films are charming and beguiling in their ingenuity; the poems are riotous, loud with language and imagery, profoundly bizarre. Oh, and impossible to perform: among other things, the poems call for a bicycle with “a single dimension,” “an American girl with eyes of celluloid,” and the invention of a new alphabet. BKRBKRA: A SEQUEL is an attempt to stage the impossible, a playful vaudeville, a multi-media painting.
