Poems in H& and Streetcake; new video poem on YouTube

Several poems appearing in the blogoverse this week.

On April 25, one of my video poem stills, “Emit Damage-1” appeared in H&. You can see it here. This is a still from the video poem “Reprogramming Cybertopia.” You can see the entire video on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel here.

On April 23, “Rock Remains Rock” was published in Streetcake Issue #52. You can read it here.

Plus, I posted another video poem on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel. This one’s called “Succubus Highway” because of all the bikini girls on motorcycles.  The text reads “wherever there are ruins/lives like flames/dance across time.”

“Reprogramming Cybertopia”–New video poem on YouTube

This week’s video poem posted to my Bionic Eyes YouTube channel is “Reprogramming Cybertopia.

This one is something of a science fiction story about a UFO invasion during which aliens reprogrammed our two dimensional reality to create a cybertopia based on disinformation. The sphere of control includes mental processing, advertising, reconfiguration of physical space, and the deletion of individual consciousness.

Flashes of awareness interrupt the flow of kaleidoscopic patterns, glitch erasures, and a thick haze of throbbing video distortion. Humans conduct themselves as normal, despite being embedded in an artificial environment.

Video text: “emit damage/and what remains/to defeat real truth”

Visual poem in H& journal

A still image from one of my recent video poems appeared on March 30 in the poetry journal H&. This visual poem is titled “Static-1”. You can see it here.

The text on the image reads: “static/crushed bits/another meme ends.” It’s taken from one of a new group of works centering on lost civilizations, and the fragility of cultures, languages, and nations. The source video was created using a long chain of glitch video devices and other old video effects processors. Some of that footage can be viewed on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel.
