Equivalent to me to an ekphrasis, but about the song Like Treasure by Editors. The beginning part refers to the song. As the piece goes along, it tells a story kind of interpreted from the lyrics, but it’s own thing. A composite version of an ekphrasis about music.
I’ve been trying to write an ekphrastic poem forever, but I’m kind of working on some things about visual art pieces in the back of my mind.
In the meantime, I thought I’d go with Tom Smith’s allegory & kind of do a practice using music.
By far my favourite version of this song is one he recently recorded for his instagram. You can watch it here. I hope you enjoy the song & my poem. 💜🎶🌙🌷🌿
