This is a video poem, a poem whose lines are set to clips from other videos and from film. It’s about seeing ourselves more as a world than a nation or people, an idea that is right on the horizon of humanity, close enough to be what we talk about. Here, it’s spoken if I might call it that, meaning it’s put in poetry, not the kind you grew up with I’m sure, but the kind that something as multidimensional as the web makes possible, and you just have to see the poem to hear it.
I should mention this is an abridged form of the much longer poem, and you can read and listen to it at:
