agnes the elephant

I made a poem-film from an excerpt of a manuscript I’ve been working on called Agnes the Elephant.  I used some home movie footage from the Prelinger Archives of a baby coming home from the hospital, and edited out all the parts where the baby appears.

The excerpt is read by Hamza Akalin. This is the same excerpt that Hamza read from last fall for Poetry Press Week, where he appeared as a ghost in a bloody sheet.
