Where’s the pink fish? Enough said.

The Moon String

I’ve been wanting to experiment with images that I’ve collected via Instagram and pairing them with fragment poetry. Yesterday I took the leap.
The above is the digital mock up of this…

…which in time, I hope, will become a physical poem in its own right, based on the digital.

Art goes round and round. And the words swirl in a dervish with it.

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #5

All the poems for the postcards come from a random draw of word snippets; all the off cuts, of all the pages, from all the poems I’ve built over the last year. I have two baggies of Calvino and one for Winterson. 


Last week my son came home with some Avant Cards he found in the library. These were our staples two years ago when Kim and I started writing. 

Pretty hard not to be wowed by Ying Huang’s Heart’s Shadow. And I loved what was randomly drawn from the baggie. Couldn’t have been a more perfect fit for the artwork.
