I am creating poetry of moving words. I'm trying to put sounds and some music with the works that "intensify" the emotions I intend for the words to create. I use the moving screens to create pauses and breaks. The sounds are from public domain movies. I do not use pictures. You still have to "read" the poems, they are not voiced. I guess I'm a purist.
