sweating in the shade
the boulder and I

I’d shave my head
but it only brings the sun closer

closer still a mob of crows
re-convenes in my ear

iridescent midnight feathers
aimed at an owl


The video is kind of a personal proof-of-concept showing I can make a videopoem entirely on the phone, using the dumbed-down version of iMovie it came with. I’m aware that there are more sophisticated video-editing apps; I’m just being lazy (and cheap). I’m fairly happy with the text of the poem, though. It might be pointing somewhere useful.
