A few weeks ago I watched this video by poet Derrick Brown. It is called "A Finger, Two Dots Then Me." You can see it here. There is one line that stood out to me in the poem, and it was incredible because the words fit perfectly with this piece of art I did recently. "The design in the stars is the same in our hearts." How beautiful is that? It's even better in the poem. The phrase is near the end and by that point the poem has taken on epic dimensions, expanding through themes of life and death, love and loss. There is kind of a funny surprise ending too, which I like in a poem.
I have a post on the making of this piece of art here.
