i have made a captive of myself/and put me into a dungeon/and now i cannot find the key/to let myself out


and not waving, but drowning

onthenatureofunderstanding - Kay Ryan

Say you hoped to
tame something
wild and stayed
calm and inched up
day by day. Or even
not tame it but
meet it halfway.
Things went along.
You made progress,
it would be a lengthy process,
sensing changes
in your hair and
nails. So it's
strange when it
attacks: you thought
you had a deal.

more here, paper mojo


in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting it,remembering yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remembering me


"I seek to maintain and simultaneously disrupt painting's absolute presence."

poetry/emily dickinson

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody -- Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise -- you know!
How dreary -- to be -- Sombody!
How public --like a Frog --
To tell one's name -- the livelong June --
To an admiring Bog!

Glasgow-based artist Karla Black is known for her sprawling floor-based and hanging sculptures that comprise diverse materials such as plaster, vaseline, acrylic paint, lipstick, nail polish and body lotion.

"Black chooses her media for their tactile aesthetic appeal: the familiarity of the texture of cellophane or the scent of cosmetics bridges the experience of tangible matter with the intimacy of memory or the subconscious. Black's process is intensely physical and this energy is conveyed through ther work's impromptu staging; this suggestion of performance psychologically involves the viewer with the making process, provoking instinctive responses to her precarious assemblages"
