As Seen On Vimeo: Warsan Shire’s For Women Who Are Difficult To Love’

We are huge fans of Warsan Shire’s poetry; if you are looking for imagery that cuts right to the bone, I mean raw and beautiful as hell imagery, that terribly honest shit…Then you should probably visit her blog, or her tumblr, or you can buy her CD, or her book, all of which I can guarantee are excellent.

Or you can watch the two amaaaaazing videos below.

Both videos are interpretations of one of her finest pieces, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love. One of them has a clear narrative, the other is… well… two silhouettes dancing in slow motion whilst being eaten by a fog. Go ahead and watch. they’re both stunning.
