Postcardia-cum-Poetica #72

The second of my postcard treats was a box of 100 cards from Magnum Photos. This is René Burri’s 1964 photo of dead lotus leaves on Kunming Lake in the grounds of the summer palace near Beijing. Words from Women Who Run With The Wolves.

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #70

Last week I comfort bought stacks of postcards. There’s possibly only one other person I know who would engage in such a practice (and who is likely to receive all of said postcards across the next year!!)

I had fallen out of the ritual of sitting down on a Tuesday afternoon and doing a postcard. So, I treated myself to some shiny new ones.

This is Long Yak (2008) from Mark Ryden. Words from Women Who Run With The Wolves (these were the snippets that fell out when I tipped one bag into another bag of fragments!!)

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #64

King (2017) from Cake Industries’ (Jesse Stevens and Dean Petersen) Machination promo card. Words from Women Who Run With The Wolves.

Love the cohesive discombobulation in all of this.

Mapping The Soul-Skin #11

This one comes with a bit of a story. This is the second last piece of art for the series. As I’ve progressed through the 12 poems I’ve gone from making the poem and trying to fit them to a card to pulling a card and creating a poem for it.

This card has been around the block. I think every poem has almost had a turn on it.

But when I took it out today – I turned it sideways and could see a woman reaching out of nothing. I’d never seen it before. Then… well, I will never not be amazed at what comes up from a randomly chosen page.

As always, this is available for sale. $25 plus postage. Leave a comment if you’d like to claim it.
