Below you can find the video and sound recording of the poem “I used to … / It’s love … ” – a poem which I wrote very early this morning, almost in one go!
I have made the video with pictures and footage from my last year in my beloved Liverpool and Dublin.
Although she will probably never know, this is for the best and most generous muse a man could ever have: dearest Claire, whether you meant to or not, I have become the person I should’ve been entirely because of you.
So this, then, in the gentlest and least threatening frame I can possibly ever wish to transmit, is my video-poem to your person: a video-poem not of melodramatic love at all; rather, the love of eternal – never-now-to-go-away – gratitudes.
