crush

 

the poem "Love" by Yes, Kant Can (which he posted a few days ago), explores the nature of love. it reminds me of this video which explores one aspect of love, "the crush," and its often less than happy ending.

 

in a way this video is a visual sonnet—

 

"Love is not love 

Which alters when it alteration finds . . ."

 

but it does alter. i hope the video works for you:

love is eternal

though lovers come and go

 

love is bliss

bliss is fleeting

 

love is kindness

from the heart

 

love is pain

from a broken heart

 

love is blue

so the song says

 

love is purposeful

think procreation

 

love is childish

turns women to girls

 

men to boys

love is a work in progress

 

with no end in sight

love is everything one hopes it to be

 

and less

and more

 

~

 

silly girl

P.S. I meant "animation," not "animal."

I loved the concept and the animal of the video. Like you said, it is a visual image. I also liked the aphoristic quality of the couplets.
