This videopoem was created using an illustrated poem (by me, Sarah James) into which a box shape was cut. This box was used to view poems in my collection Into the Yell. Pictures of this process created many of the video visuals, while the words exposed through the box were recorded for use as the backing 'concept poem' audio.

I then selected from these words to form a short proto-poem. Taking this away from the original texts, and with inspiration from the poem 'Heaps' by Philip Gross, I redrafted this into the poem 'Behind our many-wintered doors': the main audio focus.

This poem also features in from Be[yond]by Sarah James (Knives, Forks and Spoons Press, 2013)
