Across the Water (2021) A visual poem / video poetry

Premiered as part of Is It A Good Time? A group show of non-citizen artists that had been in the U.S. during the pandemic, shown on Mana Contemporarys website. 

My home is always across the  water

the water is a sea, sometimes  a screen

regardless its always blue and endless

what I reach for is blurred by pixels or wet fog

_____

for many years I only say my mom through a screen

behind different blue icons

my own reflection has also become blurred

its sharpest in the borderless land between takeoff and landing 

my home is always across the water
