This Is Not Hollywood Notting Hill 2018
The mile long smile with a cheese, the trendy shades, the red lipstick
But this is not Hollywood, this is the Notting Hill Carnival
It was created by Claudia Jones as a bridge to African-Caribbean culture
Sometimes we wonder what there is at the other end of the bridge
Is it the future of the past , a vain surrealist attempt to me more real than real ?
