This video poem seems to be addressed to Eliet, perhaps the young girl in the image it is dedicated to. The poem presents a series of lines in a scheduled sequence that is as linearly inevitable as the flow of blood in a body’s vessels. As each strophe fades in and out into several positions in the small window, it presents a vision of a very primal kind of determinism. There’s a harshness to the message that is enhanced by the musical beat, buzzing electronic sound, and the occasional use of red in the font. Pushing against this, we have images of a girl lying on the grass looking at ducklings, and that of a white lily— a flower commonly associated with funerals.
As you read this poem, look at it, paying attention to things like the pacing, positioning, and color of its lines to notice subtleties in how binaries set up in the poem are resolved.
