    1. Movies are something we all share and know about and have seen. Perhaps in the near future we can do a joint-performance about a single movie we all like and have seen…maybe more than once. It could be classic like Gone With the Wind or a Hitchcock film or some sci-fi movie or campy like Plan 9 from Outer Space. I enjoyed doing this one with Diana. A “seed” text like a quote or image could be helpful. Doing the the 2 verticle poems with 2 people would be the ultimate collaboration perhaps. That way the 3rd poem would be a mind-meld of the best of 2 worlds? It’s alive! It’s alive!
