Erotic Tales: On Top Down Under

Erotic Tales: On Top Down Under

ON TOP - Iceland, a lighthouse, a cold winter evening. Her thoughts drift back to that summer ... to bathing in the hot springs ... to when they first met ... and embraced.

DOWN UNDER - Australia, the desert, a blistering heat wave. His pickup stops at an icehouse ... he lays the blocks neatly on the buckboard ... and drives off, haunted by a aching memory.

Without dialogue or comment, save for verses from a sonnet by John Keats, On Top Down Under links the thoughts, the emotions, the sensual longing of young lovers at opposite ends of the world. A tone poem, a collage of sight and sound.
