Last Year

1 March 2015

This poem is an erasure of existing film subtitles, returning to clichés of memory in the form of the stills. The soundtrack created in response by Edmund Hardy is partly collaged from the same sources. The two pieces can be read and played together or one after the other, as joint or separate versions of déjà vu. The failure of memory is often depicted as a failure of faithfulness. But how can one keep faith with a memory that has gone missing?
