a little black strap by George Bowering

Director Pamela Bentley took a fascinating approach to this poem from George Bowering‘s chapbook of the same title (Unarmed press, St. Paul, 2009). This was screened at Visible Verse 2012 — thanks to festival organizer Heather Haley for the link in her detailed post-mortem account. She called it “a most delightful adaptation of legendary Canadian writer and our first poet laureate, George Bowering’s poem.”
