Dana Guthrie Martin wrote the poem — see qarrtsiluni for the text — and Donna Kuhn collaborated with her to make the video.
By way of explanation, the poem begins with this epigraph:
Upon autopsy, the neck stump of the parasitic head was shown to contain fragments of bone and tiny vestiges of a heart and lungs.
Experimental video poem by Donna Kuhn — “an exploration of grief, a tribute to a friend who is gone.”
A video collaboration between K. R. Copeland (poem) and Donna Kuhn (video). The text may be read here.
