A Few More Snippets – August 2015

I’m dribbling them out a bit as I get them scanned! Here are a few more snippets.

They are ATC sized, 2.5″ x 3.5″, and on backgrounds I painted on discarded cardboard, mostly cereal boxes and that kind of thing.

    • You know, I think all these snippets come together because of some thought or direction in my mind, unconscious or conscious, because I have felt this way about some people in my life! But overall, I would say they all represent just an aspect of my thinking, not the whole, and lots of times they veer off into fantasy or a story I construct! It’s impossible to read too much into them as to what I think, I’d rather the reader apply them to him or herself.

  1. …and I think I’m going to steal your found poem idea to put on my junk mail art, having already stolen that. The words I collect are from magazines, so should be a different kind of poetry.

  2. I was trying to decide which one is my favorite (I do like them all!) – but I think I settled on the “shadows stood in a neat row…” The combination of the texture, color, and words really grabbed me. These are inspiring me to get back into creating some mail art! Thank you!

    • You’re welcome. I really enjoy hearing which ones appeal to people -everyone seems to like a different one, which pleases me. I’m thinking of collecting my favorites into a book (a la my poetry books, I’ve got the self-publishing bug, don’t I?). I think it’d be fun to see what would develop from a an array of them together…

      • I hope you do publish them as a book – I pictured them as one of those postcard sized books! I admit, though, I have a super soft spot for postcards (and postcard books). πŸ˜€

        I have been enjoying your books – thank you again! I plan to write you a longer note about them soon (I read poetry books molasses slow, since I go one poem at a time with lots of contemplation).

      • Yes, that’s how I saw them, too, a small book, like a little keepsake kind of thing.

        I appreciate your attention to my poetry. I read it the same way. One at a time. Sometimes even just part of one if it is long. Your mind gets to skipping along and outpacing the understanding, I find, if you read too many at once. Or at least for me. I know you love poetry and so it makes me feel good that you are taking such time with mine.
