Give me all the flickering lights

This is a hauntingly beautiful video, compiled by Inception and 300 Days of Summer actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It was compiled by Gordon-Levitt’s online collaboration company, HitRECord.

The lovely poem recited in the video is, according to Mashable (, by HitRECord member Wirrow.

Full poem (

give me all the flickering lights!

tiny specs of fluttering rays

and city glitters shimmering

but only from far away.

i want them all it’s an addiction

i want the christmas lights buried in snow

and the blips in science fiction

films from years ago.

give me all the night sky’s twinkling sprinkles

and the red pulsing eyes

on tvs that standby

fading, flirting in and out

like a game of cat and mouse.

bits of foil in the distance

blowing kisses from the sun to me and

showing no resistance to the photons

that consistently pass notes on

from one lover to the other

like cupids tiny brothers.

give me all the flickering lights.

light every candle and wave every phone

glinting and bleeping and

imprintining glowing circuses

that linger while I’m sleeping.

an orchestra of weeping light

swan singing like star crossed choirs

who play themselves to me

all night.
