About Me

My photo
I paint, make collages and mixed media work. I write poetry. I reflect on the Tao.

From "The Handbook for the Construction of Mental Habitats"

A study for a memory:
between instinct and reason,
cut along the line
familiar and disturbing.

Image, freed from context,
amputates the ritual mask of form and matter,
supplanting an independent life—
the base matter of which we are made.

No place left to leave your thoughts
on each forgotten face refracted.

No different from monstrous nature,
the interior world dissolves
into  deceptive optics,
like white sails in the sun,
and reality joins its own reflection.

This partial inversion of graphic control
has an air of fragmented discipline;
through the eyes of the child
an enigmatic ecstasy.

Nothing further can be removed
by mine own hand:
light suffices
