Kissing In Hats

The poem Kissing in hats is a villanelle, a verse from where the regular repetition of two key lines gives added urgency to what is being said. In the video, this effect is intensified by multiple tracking of the speaker’s voice, and a moving path scans a set of four drawings of World War Two lovers, kissing in hats before the men must board their train.
