This is a proposal that Poet Hiram Larew and I have submitted to Montpellier Art Center for an exhibition in their library gallery. Our vision is to weave together two distinct disciplines with multiple thematic inter-sections to explore and create.
First take Hiram's amazingly visual poetry!
up seems early
going to slip outside as soon as
sprigs poke and fences shine
about until you wave me in for breakfast
going to lean into my wishes
this is the nickel time of spring
legs seem longer.
are better ways of learning
as ready as your bird box
are better people
who get polished by the wind
there are better seeds
kind that wait a year or two.
it’s hard to wait when everything is curling
time slips through curtains to let us know
this chance is more than our pillows
quicker than that
kind of like our neighbor
slides a box of kale starts
the porch first thing
not to wake us.
And mix in, until well blended my own paintings and installations,
Cook til seared on the outside and pink on the inside.
While hot layer with movement, sounds and color. Serve immediately!
