My poem, "Sleeping Dogs", was published in Body Stories
zine in October 2019. At the zine launch, I performed the poem, accompanying myself on a squishy, homemade keytar.
Body Stories is a zine anthology "that invites conversations exploring how we inhabit space, environment, and our beings" (description from the zine's instagram account). My poem is about the way the body appears in dreams and altered states, and about how those liminal states can change the body. It is about being fundamentally altered by something that is imperceptible to everybody else.
The launch also featured a soft installation by Cassandra Smith and an interactive sound sculpture by James Grant.
You can purchase a copy of the zine by sending a message through the Body Stories instagram page.
I don't have a video of my performance, so here I've included a demo video of the keytar in action, as well as some images from the launch. Body Stories zine launch was photographed by Carmen Zammit.
