for Buster Keaton

Ever wester
ever faster
Buster, hasten
your disaster.

Film is falling,
time a twister,
sound unfurling
her nor’easter.

Scale the mast
and list to keening.
Buster, listen:
are you dreaming?

Are you falling?
Are you flying?
Buster, cinema
is dying.

Not a whisper.
Never laughter.
Buster, thank you
for disaster.

happy birthday #busterkeaton


Happy Birthday Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton VI
4 October 1895 - 1 February 1966

"To answer a question which has been asked of me hundreds of times: Was Buster solemn and unsmiling as he always appeared in his films? NO! A thousand times no! I’ve never known anyone to laugh more than he did. In fact, when we were shooting, he spoiled many a scene by cracking up with laughter.” - Bartine Burkett, 1981

Buster Keaton in Battling Butler (1926)

Since childhood I have thought Buster Keaton’s the most beautiful face of any man I have ever seen, and finally in 1962 I got an opportunity to tell him so. We were in his Sheraton Hotel suite in Rochester during the time he was making a commercial film for Kodak. I was speaking of a shot of him hiding under a table in The General: “You were so terribly beautiful in its tragic lighting, Buster, so out of key with your comic character — I can’t understand why you didn’t cut that shot out of the picture.”

Although the tragic prophecy of that close-up was now visibly chiselled upon the purity of his face, he had evidently never considered people’s reactions to its beauty. For an instant his expression was mystifyingly shaken up like a snowstorm in a crystal paperweight and then, dismissing the whole damned thing, with his little-boy walk he trudged into the kitchenette to get himself a cold beer.
