Collage: Hold Two Choices

Hold Two Choices


If you can hold two choices in tension long enough a third choice may emerge. And let's face it, there are always more than two choices...

Collage: A Penny for Your Cactus

Collage #1: A Penny For Your Cactus
This is either the first, or perhaps second collage I ever created. I think it was made in 1968 (yeah, I'm that old...) I'm happy that it's survived many moves, a house fire, epic fail relationships, and multiple careers. This is one of those I hope to never be parted from.

Collage: Behind The Birthday Van

Behind The Birthday Van

For a while I was attracted to black & white images for the raw material of my collages. In this case, I glued what I was working on to a colorful sample of stationery. Happy Birthday, wherever you are.

Collage: Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup

This is both a collage and a creative writing prompt. For a time, I experimented with creating different versions of a collage using a copy machine to duplicate the base, and then making changes in it. Sort of like a very slow motion movie. Or perhaps an indulgence. It's fun. Enjoy.

my heart so full of you

even with the world falling apart
all i can think about
is keeping us together is
bringing us together doing over
chances to choose love that
endures purely forming storms
of passion, not disappointment
and pleasures we'd treasure
not measure against impossible pondering

such notions preoccupy me even
as you chasten me to
let go of them and declare
we're over that

we're on the same page on
so many things singing similar
songs yet wrongly irregular
on this
        i must (don't judge)
        simply kiss
you again.

again this. a kiss you and me
and see where this
leads us. and please,
trust me on this
i have your best interests at heart
and my heart
            so full of you
throbs incessantly still

agreed, we see this
                   differently
and so i'll wait and take
moment by careful moment
time with you until
i'm no longer (we're no longer)
careful and cautious but
dramatically real

how does that feel?
