Burlington, Vermont, USA
you’ve been had
Even fools like me
Even fools like me
I said you're running out of fools
Even old fools like me
the jig is up
Polonius: O, I am slain!
Babe, we’ve all been there. DEFEAT.
O how you held on. Iron on the tongue - whose blood? - every ragged fingernail, every festered wound cauterized, every sweet asshole clenched. But it’s oooovveerrrr nooowwww. The water rises; the curtain falls. The planet, your lover, the cat, roll to their side and lick themselves, leaving you to shelter on the edge of the bed. So what? Now what?
It’s the old poetry of scoundrels, cads and rogues. Ancient, moody songs that make betrayal sound as normal as fried eggs. Somehow we know the lyrics, but only as they fall out of our mouths.
I wish I could, but my car broke down, and I missed the bus, then the taxman came, and my baby left me, right after the cops pulled me over (before the car broke). The war washed it all anyway.
We regret to inform you.
Thank you for your time.
We had an incredible volume.
Your mother/father and I.
After careful consideration.

Single Channel VT explores the moving image and time based media through a series of ongoing collaborative viewings and discussions. Artist curated screenings are presented quarterly throughout the year highlighting the history, practitioners, and genres of the moving image and time based media. Our thematic video festival is held annually.
Single Channel VT recognizes that it occupies the unceded lands of the Abnaki, Mahican, Pennacook and other indigenous peoples. We also recognize that many existing systems of power, including arts organizations, grant privilege and access unequally. We seek to engage with artists and their work without regard to, and with respect of, their race, class, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, geography, citizenship status, religion, and neurological or physical ability.
Single Channel is a project of the Artist collaborative Snakehouse.
