“Love is Only A Double Negative”

 

April is Poetry Month, so I thought it apropos to do a reading. Which is difficult, as I don’t particularly like poetry. If you’re going to slap pretty words together you should either learn to play a guitar or arrange them into paragraph form, like Pat Conroy. My rubric doesn’t leave much leeway for spoken verse.

However one poet named Elas Giordano is brilliant, and I enjoy all of his stuff. So I took one of my favorite Giordano poems, added a soundtrack and over-dramatic narration, and threw in some cartoons to boot.

    Loved that stage whisper “Dryer” at the end-very cool video!

    Much obliged! Although I’m probably going to go back to non-poetic cartooning here pretty quick.
