I am the sea,
Drown in me
instead of whiskey--
float on my surface and
ride my waves
Meet me at the shore--
barefoot and prepared,
for an enduring night with
with Luna’s full face, fireflies,
moths and the bright eyes
of evening birds--
looking for what is sweet
And when morning rises upon the
horizon, and the Monarchs’ orange
wings migrate across –
let them find us and rest on your back
with anticipation of their journey’s end
where they too will make poetry.
This poem is part of an installation called the Poetry Dispensary. Poetry Dispensary, a mechanical artwork that vends poetry, and is displayed as a gallery piece as a part of the exhibition ‘Archaeologies of the Extraordinary Everyday.’
About the exhibition: ARCHAEOLOGIES OF THE EXTRAORDINARY EVERYDAY
Guest curated by Seattle-based artist Anne Marie Grgich, the audacious and mesmeric multi-layer exhibition will be on display at the Black Lab Gallery’s new location in Everett, WA.
Archaeologies of the Extraordinary Everyday opened Thursday, May 19, 2016, with a second opening on June 14th 2016
According to Grgich, she envisioned Archaeologies as a showcase of “extraordinary masterpieces, everyday wares and fantastic creations, not sparse, but feverish, memorable, and archeological. Objects with voices both ancient and modern.” Grgich has described her own work as “bold and luminous, painterly, gritty, grotesque, hysterical, historic” and this exhibition is no exception.
I wanted to share these poems with people who won’t get to go to Washington State and, perhaps, haven’t seen this voice from me before now. I am honored to have my poems as part of this collection.
