HERE'S TO THE NIGHT
A short animated film. Inspired by Richard Siken a poem, the first stanza of 'Little Beast' from his book 'Crush'.
Little Beast | Crush by Richard Siken
1.
An all-night barbeque. A dance on the courthouse lawn.
The radio aches a little tune that tells the story of what the night 
is thinking. It's thinking of love.
It's thinking of stabbing us to death
and leaving our bodies in a dumpster.
That's a nice touch, stains in the night, whiskey kisses for everyone.
Tonight, by the freeway, a man eating fruit pie with a buckknife
carves the likeness of his lover's face into the motel wall. I like him
and I want to be like him, my hands no longer an afterthought.
