Fence – Slides and Reading

fence.film.soun

Click on the link above and you will download a powerpoint presentation with accompanying narration of my book length poem, Fence, published by Penned in the Margins in 2015 (to be reissued this summer). Once the file is downloaded you will need to play it in powerpoint. Start from the beginning of the slide show and it should play all the way through.

The poem concerns boundaries, the north, whaling, urbanization, exploration and environmental devastation.  It is based on my own visit to Svalbard along with the journals of some previous visitors.
