“An Outside Abandoned to Smokers and Solitary Speakers”–a poem-video by Wendy Burk (The Volta: Medium)

9 Apr

I never guessed a video of a poem being composed would be enthralling. But it is! Wendy Burk here lets us see the hatching of this poem, through the expansion, the shifting, and the pruning. In the end, we’re even thanked. I want to say, THANK YOU, to Wendy Burk, right back at you!, for letting us be a part of this moment, a surprising little unraveling.

Be sure to check out the archives of The Volta: Medium, a weekly journal of a single poem-video, featuring rad folks like Brian Foley, Amber Nelson, Oliver de la Paz, and many more.
