New thing!

Video performance and poem © Vanda Carter.

"Are there lots of us in boxes side by side by side by side?
Do you know if there is an outside which is not inside a box?"

Made back then when TVs weren't flat and I was slim enough to fit inside one.

I am locked inside
a box I am locked in
side
a box I am locked
inside a box I
am
locked inside
a box
I am
locked
inside a
box.

I am locked inside
a box and you are
not
inside the box that I
am
locked inside
the box
which you are locked
inside is not
the box am
inside.

I can hear you
knocking on the
box
are you
knocking from the in
side of the box
that you are
locked inside or
are you knocking on
the outside of the
box that I
am locked
inside?

Do you want to get in
side the box that
I am locked
inside or can I
get inside the
box that you
are locked
inside?

Is the inside of
my box just
like the inside
of your box
and can you hear me
knocking on the
inside of my
box maybe
the outside of
your box joins to the
outside of
my box?

Are there lots
of us in boxes
side by side by side
by side?

Do you
know if there
is an outside which
is not inside
a box?
