Raising goose pimples on my skin
I dig in
I started composing this poem while walking in the rain during Victoria’s first Covid Lockdown.
In May 2020, I used it for a collaboration with Louise Hartnell, as part of Random Co-Lab, a Ballarat-based initiative which pairs random people together and gives them one week to make some kind of creative response. I wanted to experiment with layering of audio tracks and Louise made a little stop-motion video.
I then made a new video during the second Lockdown, using my phone and the imovie app and it has been chosen as a Finalist in the Queensland Poetry Festival’s Film & Poetry Challenge.
