Video: Songs of Defiance

Denied the opportunity to use my fancy schmancy Powerpoint presentation at the performance of ‘Songs of Defiance’ on Monday at the Arts Center, I decided to just record the poem and make it a video. Of course I did it in bits and pieces in between other things so it’s only just now done.

The poem was written after the 2004 election; it originally appeared in the Bayou Review and then in the Occupy Wall Street Poetry Anthology, side by side with a poem from Alessandra Bava. Good company.
