Collaborative Reading – Colin Pope

by saracomito

One of my favorite things to happen in the last few weird, hazy, threatening months is this video, produced by my buddy Meg Tuite with Brian Mihok, bringing a pantheon of small press powerhouses together to read one powerful poem.

The piece is “Still Life with Casket in the Distance” from Colin Pope’s Why I Didn’t Go to your Funeral (Tolsun Books). The poetry brought me to tears, but so did the seamless presentation of so many poet friends filmed in their respective places of isolation.

Thanks to Bending Genres Productions for bringing this beauty to life.
