Watch this video interpretation of "Colored Things"

Earlier this week, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Eric Toler of North Carolina decided to create a video interpretation of my poem "Colored Things." Eric's twitter page says he "write[s] about self-love & queer life." His page also links him to "It's Who I Am," a magazine for young adults written by young adults. I hope you enjoy his video. I did!

UPDATE: When I first saw this video, I had not yet heard about the Pharell issue discussed at Harriet. But in a way, this video could relate to that, though that was not the producer's intention at all.

I enjoyed this very much! Although I am weary of talking about color of people. I rather like this. This makes sense to me. Poetry has a way of cutting through the mess of things.
