It was too overcast to photograph the Blood Moon, but I wrote this poem while I was waiting for clouds to clear. I might make it a “row your boat” type round.

In anticipation of our Canadian animation festival expedition, I’m pulling together a portfolio, and decided it would be fun to share some pieces. This is a private link to some chapters in a series of videos I created to teach kids music production. I wrote and performed the VO, and did all the video stuff. Chris McLaughlin did audio. One of my favorite projects.https://vimeo.com/58251872

Probably my last show at Out of the Blue Gallery until it moves. Super quirky space that values process and community. I’ve learned a bunch there.

\\The Sunbathers\\
I stand in the shade with my mother
The sunbathers giggle and glow
I stare at their beautiful bodies
As I sweat in these dark summer clothes

I want to pour it all out like a fishbowl
and burn dry ‘til my fins turn to legs
Leave this place and pretend I’m an orphan
and start fresh somewhere oceans away

I stare in the eyes of a stranger
I see everything there I could want
They project over me like a future
Full of beautiful things I forgot

I want to stay with these birds here forever
Squeeze the moon so hard that twilight never breaks
Spend a life in that place just before we look away
And move on with our arms full of waves

Now I stand here with all of these people
All the places on all of these shores
The past is so vast and elastic
echoing words swinging doors

I want to sort through every strand like it’s a haystack
Find a needle that could stitch a straight line through
But it’s all just noise and polaroids
Of sunbathers waving at you…
