“I Cried Of Course” by William Minor, Elise Rotchford, and Steve Minor

Screen capture from "I Cried Of Course" by William Minor, Elise Rotchford, and Steve Minor. A black-and-white cutout of a old-timey photograph depicting a woman with bobbed hair and a long, polka-dotted dress; the poem is displayed on a note to the side, and its last two lines are written in hand; dark blue barckground. Text: "I cried of course when they told me / you were dead. / Frankly I'd forgotten / already, Brigadoon / (you called me that when, good for a night, a day, I failed to return) / Your nineteen-year-old body bruised to the touch. / Not dramatic this: / the simple erratic division of cells. / (In handwriting) 'Now it is the hand of death / That grants the gift of life itself'.'"
