    hmmmm, can i post a poem that won't make hazy sick?

    i'm enjoying reading this thread. i really enjoyed bloonman's ballon art AND poem!

    hazy's essay on his kids brought tears to my eyes.

    levi - nice collages - you aren't kidding about the narcissism are ya?

    i'm concentrating hard and i think - yup i think i hear GF's beautiful flute playing.


    a word on cliches creeping into writing - especially poetry - it's so hard not to do it!!!! try to write an original description of something - i ain't good at it - it's so much easier to just fall into the familiar phrases.

    but when you see it/read it, it's dang good. poetry can be so beautiful.


    now what was i rambling about again?

    I think you mean the one on the home page "Whose house, whose child" - that was done as an anti-war piece for a site called Urban Collective. I used a photo of my daughter, and some windows I shot in Tennessee, but I changed the window frame in photoshop to look like a cross.

    I've done some cemetary shots, but I like buildings better. I broke into a huge abandoned housing project with my husband on the south side of Chicago a few months ago. It was so strange walking through apartment after apartment, looking at the peeling paint, with no other people around. Kind of an odd hobby for a 38 year old woman, but what can you do?





    AliceBShoe - please do post some of your work for me! My degree is in traditional painting, and it was a big break for me to switch to pixels; it took a few years for me to be comfortable enough with it that I was using it expressively, rather than just as a tool, if that makes sense.

    You're on 60th and Michigan in that picture, aren't you blindart? I have lots of family that stay right in that area (Washington Park neighborhood)...

    On a totally separate note, I have a love sonnet to share. It's written from the point of view of one potato to another.


    Potato Sonnet

    In spring we slept and woke beneath the earth,
    Our brown skins warmed, we lay in thawing ground.
    I cast my eyes at your expanding girth -
    The wondrous seeds of love grew plump and round.

    But then we heard the sound of heavy boots -
    A shovel struck. I saw your heart revealed
    And you were ripped from me. Oh! Tender roots!
    Mere words could not express the pain I feeled.

    The snows of winter came and I lay dormant.
    Torn by vanished love, a humble sinner.
    I begged for swift release from this new torment.
    I could not bear to eat, and thus grew thinner.

    To nobler heights (like a grain elevator)
    I rose, though I am but a common tater.

    That sounds about right, I don't know the exact intersection - we were just visiting. We were driving around looking for slums to explore, and I noticed when we went past that complex, a metal door was propped open a bit. My husband is a really conservative geek engineer, I can't believe he went in there with me.

    Blindart!

    That was hilarious! I felt a little guilty, though, eating french fries while I read it!

    eating french fries?! That hurts.

    I was proud when I wrote it, cause I said I had eyes, and it was a potato, you know.
