Hi Poetry and Film Lovers,
The Yarre Stooker film Mary, based on my poem “Mary” and starring the virgin whore poetess Win Harms in the title role, has now been wonderfully presented in Urban Graffiti magazine. You can read the write-up and see the film right here
Once you have done, by all means send the link to your friends and colleagues. We want Mary to go viral. She deserves to!
We will of course be entering Mary in film festivals. Should it win anything like an Oscar, you’ll surely hear 🙂
“I suspect Mary will win many awards at film festivals. It is the best
cinematic treatment of a poem I have seen in a very long time.”
– Urban Graffiti editor Mark McCawley
Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Yarre Stooker film
based on my poem “Mary” and starring Win Harms in the title role is now online for general viewing! The film is only 12 minutes in length, and you can watch right now
Be sure it’s on full screen and the volume is up. Then send the link to all your friends!
Ever onward to ecstasy, EDDIE
ps If after watching the film you’d like to read (or reread) the poem “Mary,” it’s here:
“I am Mary, anarchist princess of spiritual revolution, scarlet perpetrator of crimes against ignorance…”
Listen up, Folks!
She was born in Wyoming, knocked about an awful lot, spent her formative
later youth in Philadelphia, and these days lives in Lille, France. But
what’s really important is that Win Harms writes the most amazingly original
poetry. Real poetry for real people. ‘Poetry you can lean on,’ as Ira Cohen
once said of Patti Smith’s.
Now Win’s first collection, In Harms Way, has been published as a Kindle
edition by Barncott Press.
You can read more about the book, as well as leaf thru a preview (and then of
course order a copy!) right here
Come June, Win’s poems will appear in two Silver Birch Press publications,
the Summer Anthology and a special Bukowski Anthology. Also this year she will have poems in Urban Graffiti and Ol’ Chanty (Chanticleer online).

Dear Fellow Poetry Lovers,
I am at once pleased and proud to announce that my classic poem “Mary” is now appearing in the excellent online magazine Urban Graffiti. It is there together with a video clip of me reciting the poem at Ana Montana’s outrageously wonderful sAlon dAdA, in Amsterdam. (This clip was made by Helena Karsten, with whom I’m now working on a film adaptation of “Mary.”) And is further accompanied by the famous Diana Blok & Marlo Broekmans Pietà photograph. In which I am Mary to Diana’s Jesus.
You can get to all of that right now, right here
That’s it, folks. See how short and sweetly to the point I can be sometimes 🙂
