Inspired by Helen Heath, whose Tuesday poem last week was a video of 'Guys like Gauguin' by Selina Tusitala Marsh, I've decided to do a video poem this week too. This is 'Calling you home', by me. I had grand plans of making lots of video poems, but, as yet, my plan has not come to fruition. I hope this will change in the future, but you know, so much to do, so little time...
I also chose this because it's about S, who stars, briefly, in the video. His surgery went really well and he's doing fine, but stuff like this makes you appreciate things, and other soppy stuff.
The real star of this video though is the manky flat I lived in when I wrote it, and where a friend still lives – so I got to go back and film most of this there.
Anyway, here's 'Calling you home':
If for some reason you can't view it here, you can see it here on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lq21OmFTF4.
