Experimental Video Poem, 4 min. (2002)

View video

The poet Lenelle N. Moise submerges herself in her mother’s passion for water in this surreal visual poem. Fluid imagery and unique juxtapositions create a haunting reverie about the influence of unseen forces, diaspora and the Haitian sea goddess Erzulie. Ms. Moise’s powerful voice and performance draw the audience into her vivid recollections.
