This is an animation for poetry by Timothy Kercher that I created, beginning only with the words on the page.
The text of the poem is below:
On Being a Refugee
A ghost of wholeness,
your cat turned wild,
scouring the fields for mice at night.
You can’t hear her hunt,
but place milk out,
only when you have it.
The windows you open
ever so carefully are not your own;
you slice your thumb on an edge by accident—
the leapfrog ooze and the dandelion bloom
of blood dripping on glass,
like Christ bleeding
in the windows of cathedrals.
