Filmmaker’s statement

Mark Bethune says:

“I wrote this poem on a train in Sweden while reflecting on all the girls in high school that would not return the love I had for them. I thought perhaps the adventures I had been on and all the turmoil they put me through was part of a greater plan to test my affection. Most of them are married now.”
