Eternity in a Chasm is my latest poetry video to celebrate National Poetry Day. It was first published in Decanto Magazine in December 2011.

This one was recorded at the Basilica Agios Stefanos in Kos, Greece. The ruins date to the early Christian period, a beautiful historical setting for my reading.

Joseph Robert and I recorded the video early in the morning before the first tourists could come along. Having it to ourselves added an ethereal serenity to the piece, which was perfect for the tone of the piece. Granted, the location wasn’t a dark hypogeum to fit the poem, but too gorgeous a site not to film there!
