I decided to share this video of me reading my poem, “White Caravan: a Death Fugue in My Mother’s Voice,” whichappeared in Zoeglossia in November 2022, and was part of Water Always Wanders: a Ritual of Queer Romani Storytelling as part of Fringe Festival, a program of the Tennessee Williams & New Orleans Literary Festival in 2023.
It feels right to share this tribute to my mother now. Thank you so much to everyone involved, especially Viktor Pachas for editing the video with family photos, and adding his music.
Here is the link to the poem if you would like to read it. White Caravan in Zoeglossia.
