#5 (S. Lee)

A neophyte, a movie making virgin,
That’s how I went into this Masterclass.
All I really knew is that I like Spike Lee,
The angles,
The stories,
The Knicks passion,
Except I don’t like the Knicks,
But that’s not the point,
There is something about his “Joints”
That I love.

A neophyte, a movie making virgin,
That’s how I came out of his Masterclass.
All I really learned is that I am better because of Spike Lee,
His perspectives,
His wisdom,
His passion,
His style earned and unflinching,
And that is the point,
His “Joints” are something because he is something,
That’s it, right there.

I will probably never make a movie,
But what I learned might help me create something else,
Something that leaves others in awe
Like when I left the theater in Philly,
Stunned by what I had just seen
After Radio Raheem was brought down in Do the Right Thing.
Strength, soul, and a life of expectation
Are lessons learned in this class from a true master of film making.
The learning is there,
No what, dude?
