Poetry for All: Prompt 2

Here’s the second in my series of video poetry prompts. This one includes a poem by Peter Pereira, from his collection What’s Written on the Body. These are intended for the poetry-curious, beginning writers, and anyone who’d like company at the desk. Please feel free to share this, and I hope you’ll leave me a comment to let me know how it goes, OK?
