Monday Muse Watches 'Constellations'

I introduced a Todd Boss videopoem ("The Trees—They Were Once Good Men") to my readers this past July (see post). Below is an animation of Boss's poem "Constellations", which is from the collection Yellowrocket (W.W. Norton, 2008). Enjoy!

Text of "Constellations"

With Angella Kassube, Boss co-founded the nonprofit Motionpoems. Boss's most recent collection is Pitch: Poems (W.W. Norton, 2012).

"35 Poems for 35W", StarTribune, August 2, 2012
