If facing the paper, your thought is 'I am an artist', you have no clue what to do. If the concepts of your function are, 'I am a shape maker, an entertainer, an expressive symbol collector'...then you have an explicit road map. Edgar Whitney

Sunday 25 April 2010

Poppy Day

replant your bulbs
on ANZAC Day
right after dawn service
according to her grandmother

lay fresh flowers at the feet
of your hero's photo
his eyes bewildered
as the flash flares

his thoughts were
roast lamb
the shape of your hands
when you sew
the scurry of your heels
and hair blown back in the breeze
as you run for the bus
