patriarchy tonic – a micro poetry film

My film starts at 3:15 (it’s only 35 seconds long)

The fabulous editors of Tiny Spoon hosted a virtual release party inviting contributors from their Consumption issue to submit virtual readings. I took the opportunity to create a micro (super-short) film for my poem, patriarchy tonic. It’s also a protection spell and stars my sweet kitty, Abbie “Abracadabra Dream” Hoffman. Enjoy!

Heart Spell (co-opted from ad I see in the subway)

A heart with wings

A heart for discover.com

A heart for the gluttonous

A heart for the homeless woman

with two kids and a heart

saying “every little bit helps”

A heart for the lonely, hungry

A heart for the oil companies

A heart for cancer and its bodies

A heart for virus and survivors

A heart for bankers

A heart for farmers

A heart for mothers and soldiers

and fathers and children

A heart for teachers

A heart for plankton

A heart for baristas

A heart for anarchists

A heart for capitalists

A heart for the sea urchin

A heart for the shark

A heart for algae

A heart for tree bark

A heart for cosmopolis

A heart for socialites

A heart for the housewives of New Jersey

A heart for poets

A heart for Boston

A heart for prisons

A heart for free bodies

A heart for binaries

A heart for the dialectic

A heart is comfort

A heart covers the wound

A heart for the paradox
