Head Over Heels and Poem in Cross Review

hoh+kitchen+brighter

I don’t always find things on the internet anymore that really bowl me over.  It’s hard to remain sensitive to all the content out there when I sit here day in and day out and (un)consciously absorb a great deal of it, both interesting and not. But I think the stop motion animated short Head Over Heels is worthy of a pause.  It’s a beautiful and metaphorical depiction of a marriage and, to me, shows how we can still just go on living singularly even while co-habituating.   And I think it makes the point that while it may be sometimes functional to do so that couples must find ways (and comprises) to continue making connections. Anyway, watch it here. So tender.

Also, I have a poem in the latest issue of Cross Review. You can read it here.
