The Cyclists  

by    Barbara Fulchino        

Five lovely, grinning girls                                                          

Bicycles attached

An accessory if you will                                                                                      

Cyclists Ginger, Peggy, Bunny, Blondie, & Honey

Cyclists   Ginger, Peggy, Bunny, Blondie, & Honey

A summer thrill.       

Ready, get set and go

Up Broadway, down Cottage Street          

In and out and round about.

The world wide open,

No holds barred.

Five young ladies

Ginger, Peggy, Bunny

Blondie and Honey

Out for a ride

Best of friends, forever

Soon to be some man’s bride.

certain things   (2001, 3 min., NY)  by Anna Van Someren

The artist weaves together bits of tense phone conversations with her mother, intimate images of them playing with a spy camera, and found footage of a patient undergoing electroconvulsive therapy, to create a short but intense foray into the issues surrounding medicated female identity.
