Coco The Wonderboy’s House Of Hashtags – Janet Lees – Isle of Man

This poem was inspired by the hashtags used by an Instagram friend, ‘Coco the Wonderboy’, aka Ciaran Cunningham, each of which encapsulates a little story. I chose several of the hashtags and wove them together to make a hashtag poem, which I then turned into a poetry film. I took the central image in the back alleys of Douglas in the Isle of Man where I live. There was a strong sense of longing and poignancy in the hashtag poem, which was complemented in the image of the backs of houses; an overall sense of people being shut in and unable to communicate. At the same time, in the imagination we are able to make anything happen, which is reflected in the three suns that appear one by one, and the wall plant with lightning coming out of its roots. I made the film in May 2020 when Britain was in lockdown. The music is by Jesse Gallagher, ‘The Annunaki Return’, via YouTube Audio Library.

Janet Lees is an artist, poet and poetry filmmaker. Her film-based works have been selected for many festivals and screenings, including the Zebra Poetry Film Festival, the International Videopoetry Festival and the Aesthetica Art Prize. Her art photography has been exhibited around the world, and she represented the Isle of Man at the Festival Interceltique in France, with an exhibition comprising art photography, film and poetry. Janet’s poetry is widely published and anthologised. She has had two books published: ‘House of water’, a collection of her poems and art photographs, and ‘A bag of sky’, the winning collection in the Frosted Fire Firsts prize hosted by the UK’s Cheltenham Poetry Festival.

    about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.

  22. Hello! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers
    and starting a new project in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done
    a extraordinary job!

  23. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  24. 506942 570499wonderful post, extremely informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector do not notice this. You need to continue your writing. Im sure, youve an excellent readers base already! 652259

  25. Hey there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to take a look.
    I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my
    followers! Excellent blog and amazing design and style.

  26. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site
    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

  27. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my website
    thus i came to “return the favor”.I am trying to find things to improve my website!I
    suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  28. Greetings I am so glad I found your webpage, I really
    found you by mistake, while I was searching on Yahoo for something
    else, Anyways I am here now and would just like
    to say thanks for a incredible post and a all round thrilling blog (I also love
    the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all at the minute
    but I have saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much
    more, Please do keep up the superb b.

  29. What you wrote made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a killer headline? I mean, I don’t want
    to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title
    that makes people want more? I mean Coco The Wonderboy’s House Of Hashtags – Janet Lees – Isle of Man is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to get people
    to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get
    readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts
    a little bit more interesting.

  30. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different
    subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

  34. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    info written in such a perfect method? I’ve a project that
