video title:
how do you love
year: 2009, duration: 4:33

synopsis: How Do You Love is a cinepoem that combines poetry, music (by J. Schwalm), public domain archival footage and self-shot video. It’s a dual screen creation that utilizes the mood of the music and film to tell the story. An excerpt from the poem:
how do you love, with abandon
with the shared thrill of a future
or is it present: you can only love in the moment
do you make her into a puzzle
collecting and connecting her
piece by piece by piece
how do you love, with extravagance
do you shower her with lightness and laughter,
filling the emptiness with promises of forever
is it whole, your love…
