My poem “Sideshow” as a short film.

It’s amazing, actually–I’ve wanted this poem to be a film for a while. A couple of years ago, when I needed to create a video as a finalist for the Write Bloody contest, “Sideshow” was the poem I thought I would go with. (Instead, with the help of my friend Eric Wilhelm, I used “don’t take rides from strangers” and adore the results.)

But it seems a young filmmaker at Temple University named Tiffany Irene went there–and went there well! I had no idea until I noticed a tweet from Moving Poems:

Crevice from Dream On Films on Vimeo.

I love the way my friend MJ described the experience of this discovery–”It’s like your babies are growing up and sending you amazing post cards.”

Thanks, Tiffany Irene!
