‘Semi-Automatic Pantoum’ a video poem by Matt Mullins, in collaboration with the Poetic Justice League of Chicago

Semi-Automatic Pantoum is a collaboration between Matt Mullins and the Poetic Justice League of Chicago. The piece addresses the absurd tragedy of America’s political gridlock over implementing common sense gun legislation that will save lives while keeping a citizen’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms intact.
