9 Poems/ The Lovers is a book of nine poems and screenshots. The poems are a series of ekphrastic responses to works by video artists of color like Martine Syms and Tony Cokes, accompanied with screenshots from my video The Lovers Are the Audience Who Watch. The Lovers Are the Audience Who Watch takes its title from a line of poetry by Juliana Huxtable, and explores 'the gaze' as an expression of affection. The video is compiled of found footage on YouTube, ranging from music videos to art documentaries, that centers around a publicly revered figure.
