This month, the United States celebrates National Poetry Month, a national celebration of the rhythmic word.  In honor of this glorious occasion, Voices will present some fresh takes on the art form.

Journalist and videographer Lam Thuy Vo describes the project:

"This film is a visual interpretation of William Carlos Williams' poem 'This is just to say.' It was shot on a cloudy Hong Kong morning and edited on the hot afternoon that followed right after. It interprets what has become a favorite poem of mine using scenes from my neighborhood and my apartment."

I have eaten

the plums

that were in

the icebox

and which

you were probably


for breakfast

Forgive me

they were delicious

so sweet

and so cold
