~ Poet: Bianca Lynne Spriggs ~

Live from the Mothership by Bianca X

Calling anyone who was ever left
behind as a casualty to proverb—
to rot on the sidelines or dangle
by a hangnail over the edge of a cliff.
This one’s for you in all your awkward glory.

Why is so much poetry—and by extension poetry film—so serious? This film by poet Bianca Lynne Spriggs AKA Bianca X and filmmaker Angel Clark suggests that there’s more than one way to be transported. It’s based on a poem of the same title from Bianca’s 2016 collection from Argos Books, The Galaxy Is a Dance Floor.
