The Part of Works

Adele Myers’s recent film works re-imagine the words of poets, shifting the dialogue from the page to the screen. She reconstructs the imagery and narrative to create new and extended themes that go beyond the original. Often drawing from her life experiences to bond a personal perspective to the text. The result is a meander, a meditation or kaleidoscope of observation.

Racing Time 

He elbows the cold morning aside,

a string vest, seventy years and legs

bowed like the trees but just as sturdy.

Shorts billowing like the clouds,

chin inclined to the hill, he will eat up

the distance, have the hill for breakfast.

The starting gun was the crack of knees

first thing then a stretch into the morning,

a dawn chorus of approval everywhere.

The breeze in the sails of his shorts,

as he battles up the waves of the hill,

the effort breaking on his sheer face.

He stumbles, but does not give way

fights back, tramples the hill under foot

and the hill pushes back with strength.

His arms pump, pistons punch the air,

pummel the morning, bare knuckles,

knobbly knees in the groin of the hill.

Because it is there, because he is there,

because he will never hang up his heart,

he plants the flag of himself on the top.

From Dangerous Driving 


Sometimes you just have to remove yourself from the landscape 

Before your lips curl up and dry out like Ferns

Before your heart breaks down into the rain sodden dirt

Before you stain the horizon with your smile 

So I fold up my life 

Like Origami 

Fold it into my pocket 

Until I slowly
