Inheritance is the second poem in the series of English video poems, and it was never published before. It is a very personal rendition of feelings related to the loss of my mother, my own origins and my relationship to desire. This one is also directed by Cristiane Oliveira and with voice by Wayne. I think it is important to highlight that, different than my previous series of poems, these ones have a male voice, and that seems to add a different embodiment to my own sensibility on what the feminine can be.
