Dog Star Man by Howie Good

Update: Video has been made private.

Swoon‘s second film for a poem by Howie Good (look for the third here next week). I think the fugal structure works really well with this poem, especially in light of the last sentence:

You can hear if you really listen

the common names for things
weeping noisily beneath the music.

The poem appears in Lovesick from Press Americana (2009). Here’s a review.
