3 poems by Jaswinder Bolina, Ana Bozicevic’s (aka my) Voicemail Anthem and from Where Absence Is by Nathalie Stephens aka Nathanaël are on PoetryPolitic today in the form of three poemfilms by the great magus Joshua Marie Wilkinson of Rabbit Light Movies.

As per the Wikipedia, the Magi, magicians and interpreters of dreams (singular Magus, from Latin, via Greek μάγος; Old English: Mage; from Persian maguš and Kurdish mâgî) were a tribe from ancient Media. I think, no I know that putting talking poets in magical boxes for others to see and hear is a feat worthy of the ancient Magi of Media.
