The Film Not Chosen

Known by so many names

Netflix queue of conundrums
Netflix choice purgatory
Netflix spiral of despair
The queue grows and grows
Then there comes a day

So many choices
Genres, actors, directors,
Reviews and synopses
Stories to be explored
Dialogues to be experienced

So much time spent scrolling assessing reading reflecting
4 stars 3 stars half stars
Well reviewed, well received
Known actors, known directors
Most popular trending tasty treat of a film

My finger hovers over the select option, but
Next to it, another film
Unassuming, similar in genre, style
Possibly concept
Yet less reviewed, barely viewed
Almost forgotten

Let’s see what happens
Press play
The queue will remain
but I will change
Each choice leads to another.
