The poets stand in a gallery with an artwork between them—Lorraine with both hands up gesturing toward it and David looking at it, both with their backsides to the camera. The artwork is a large-scale, square piece, hanging on the wall. It is two-dimensional, with a textured black section stretching roughly diagonally from top-left to bottom-right corner, and with reflective silver sections in the top-right corner and along the bottom and in the bottom-left corner.

Lorraine and David discuss “Mercy,” part of Cleveland Dean’s show entitled “Recto/Verso – The Duality Of a Fragile Ego” (all works mixed media, 2017/18). Photo by Marya Spont-Lemus.
