Video poems

“Poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”


“Hospice” by Jessie Carty that first appeared at The Poetry StorehouseThis video was created by Nic Sebastian.

“Dark Matter” by Ruben Quesada that first appeared in Cimarron Review. The video version of this poem now appears at PoetrySeen, a site that showcases short poetry videos.

“A Son Writes Back” by Kenji Liu accompanied by Jason Jong and Kou Xiang at Luna Luna Magazine.

And in case you missed this one,  here’s “Why,” a video poem created by Richard Siken featuring music by Marianne Dissard. These eleven minutes and twenty seconds will be time well spent.

Please share your favorite video poems. Please feel free to share your thoughts on video poems, too. And if you know of any literary magazines or sites that feature video poems and accept video poem submissions, I’d love to hear about those, too.
