Catfish Cantos

The Catfish Cantos consist of five poems that show our world today in collages, ranging from personal relations to foreign policies. Main addressee is the US American public. The poems are written in what I tend to call a post-narrative style, developed partly from T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" (1922), from which there are several quotes in the Cantos. The catfish stands for a variety of things, mostly the subconscious. Peculiar is the usage of humor in this type of serious poetry. The poems are in English, there is no translation planned. The audios for the (trash) videos were recorded in a studio, most of the film sequences show views of the City of Mainz.
