    Paintings
    and
    Sculptures

    Each piece in this feminist and socially conscious collection of poetry describes a painting or a sculpture: some, a re-vision of a classic; others, an original work not yet realized.  Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dali, Botticelli, Monet, Rodin are among the artists whose work is re-imagined.

    Artists interested in actualizing any of the pieces for exhibit, please contact me!

    sometimes in the morning
    on that bare dressing table
    in the corner of the bedroom
    i can see my heart
    hanging
    my ruby heart
    hanging overover
    the
    edge
    bleeding onto the floor

    The Persistence of Memory

     

    strong, solid
    chin on hand
    right elbow on thigh
    left arm across knee
    leaning forward
    breasts filling in the spaces
    between the lines

    The Thinker
