This Friday, April 20, marks the second anniversary of the explosion and fire on BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling rig off the Louisiana coast, which killed 11 workers and sent 200 million gallons of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico.

Writer, performer and educator Aimee Suzara made this video-poem to commemorate the ongoing disaster. For more about Suzara and her work, visit her website here. (Via Bridge the Gulf.)
