We don’t usually get all lovey dovey for Valentine’s Day around here. But this poem came to our attention recently and it seemed appropriate to share it with you today.

Though the authors have moved on to Edmonton, these two were raised in Ottawa and were active members of our creative community. Brandon Wint describes the video as “a love poem set against the backdrop of diaspora and a shared history of migration in our families. It tries to articulate the ways in which our status as first-generation Canadians shapes, in some ways, the possibilities of the love we share.” Have a look:

Grab a loved one and enjoy this day, readers.
