This is a page where you can check out some of my work. There are several video presentations of both my contemporary poetry and fiction pieces, and a couple of video poems that I created. There is also a reading from my nonfiction text.
Samples of Poetry
These videos are samples of what I
call video poems. They are poems
included in my poetry book, Stars in
the Junkyard (Cyberwit, 2020) and
they are made in 2023 using Filmora
for the film-making program and both
use free film clips from Mixkit.
This one is a poem about living in
Vancouver, B.C. during my D.Ed
Skin Deep Batik
This video poem is a rendering of a
poem that sees the hand prints of
men left in various colours left on the
skin of women like tatoos. It is a poem
about sexualized violence.
What follows are two video poems created long ago and posted on YouTube. Oracle is from Stars in the Junkyard (Cyberwit, 2020) and Personal Myths is from The Body Labyrinth (Coach House Press, 1984).
Oracle: Lucid Dreaming
Samples of Fiction
These are video recordings made using my cell phone and mounted on You Tube in 2019 or 2020.
Samples of Nonfiction
Once again, these are video recordings made using my cell phone and mounted on You Tube in 2019 or 2020.
