It Wasn’t the Flu by Ren Powell

Norway-based American poet Ren Powell writes,

I saw a website called fiverr. People will do/make things for 5 bucks. Nathan is making play doh stop motion animations with his kids: 15 seconds for 5.

The result is something of an exquisite corpse… with kids.

It Wasn’t the Flu (From Mercy Island. Phoenicia Publishing, 2011).

I find the result really delightful and satisfying — more so than many more sophisticated poetry animations I’ve seen.
