End Lines is a video version of a poem called “Cache”, from my collection Mary Oliver, which was originally screened at the 2018 &Now Festival. This poem was composed of the end lines of a huge stack of books, which I put in a notebook and took to Italy with me, where I composed the poem. The majority of the footage in this video was recorded during that same trip.
