A Twenty Minutes poem.


Intense conversation
will disrupt the digestion
of those two women
crowded too close together
at the small table
eating grilled cheese sandwiches
and will not solve the problem
they have met to discuss
but instead will leave them
still at odds
each one
vaguely nauseated
and with a bad headache
for the rest of the afternoon

Board women group 1 9-15 small

Small women figures, acrylics on claybord, 2015, about two inches tall.

  1. Thank you. I have a whole box of these little off-cut things to work with, Dick Blick had a ten pound box, if you can believe it, for very little money, and so – one day, there will be an explosion of these little people, I have the feeling…scratching through layers of paint, or with clay work the underglaze, is a favorite of mine. Seems to work so well in getting me where I want to go.

  2. I didn’t know. Sorry about that. I was teasing you about having to balance that great yellow head. Please don’t tell me you also have hydrocephalus and chronic jaundice!
