My Found Poetry self-portrait is published in the current Jan/Feb ’13 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine!
To create this mixed-media self-portrait I rescued a severely damaged and abandoned book and upcycled it into fine artwork, selecting a word here and there and piecing them into unique, original poems and stories. Here are a few samples (but not all) of my poetry in this piece:
“one raindrop fell,
and then many,
a perfect circle expanded
perhaps a little breathless
you chose this moment
to kiss me”
from her lips
in slow-motion arcs
a sudden thought
a kiss. a smile.
crazed like fire-flies.
it was like a vision
it made me feel
sexy as hell.”
“I was deeply in love with
my own idea of love.”
And, surrounded by my swirling breath in gold paint: “I imagine no more words were necessary”
I highly recommend viewing the piece close-up to read further poetry hidden within the artwork. You can do so by visiting this link and clicking anywhere on the artwork for a detail view.
