Summer and Smoke


Is there any way to describe it—
Alma there in SUMMER AND SMOKE
Dealing with her pent-up love-life?

Geraldine Page as Alma Winemiller—
A straitlaced Kansas minister’s daughter
Una Merkel not helping out very much

The same with hussy Rita Moreno—
Putting the make on Laurence Harvey
So tres typical of closeted Kansas yuk

Like with other Hollywood films—
Sitting there in the Granada Theater
The classic old film palace knew all

Tennessee Williams knew even more—
Reading my beads as if he were there
I became Alma & Alma became me…
