A montage of photography, a tiny bit of video, original artwork and simple animation, this is a poem movie which illustrates the path toward another kind of patriotism, one which dreams of no flag. This five minute and twenty eight second short has an original score created by recording artist David Swendig. I wrote this poem when I was reading for the Provost poets in Amsterdam, but they didn't really dig it, and it wasn't until I read the poem on West Coast Live in September of 2004, and and got such an overwhelming response in support of its message, decided to create this piece in order to make the words become even more alive. It may be out of date now, but its message still holds weight...perhaps you can change the names and still feel the impact!
I edited this and is included with my book godmeat.
