Synopsis: Experimenting with making a spoken word poem into a video.

“I hate you! It’s funny how sometimes I say that to the people I love most. Because it’s too hard to commit to just the word love. I hate you like everything about you frustrates me but it’s the frustrations you bring that keep me here. It’s the worst parts of you I find so lovely as if needing a magnifying glass to prove that love is what I see unveiling before me…”

Poem is based on modern day fuckboy relationships broken down as a three course meal. Will the couple make it to dessert??
