Collaboration Update #5


like a bird, heard

like a bird, heard is an experiment that I wanted to try, using a Zoom chat with Jon as material for creating a poem. I started out thinking that maybe I’d write a haiku, in response to Jon’s A Freeform Haiku but in the process of working with the Zoom footage, that’s not what surfaced. Instead, the experiment led to this rather quirky poetic play … a one minute video that speaks a bit about our collaborative process of being in conversation, of listening, of responding, and of having some fun.

Whoe'er wrote the rules is probably long deceased and won't care if I knowingly break or just never knew them
