Welcome to my first post! As a way of introduction, I would like to share with you a poem that was written for me by my good friend and poet Harry Owen, in response to his visit to my home and studio. The title of the work is inspired by my old studio door that has a slot through which one can post letters and telegrams:

TELEGRAM

By Harry Owen

KUDU SKULL HEAVY ON TIN ROOF

MAKES OBEISANCE [STOP] GARDEN EARTH

PRICKLES INTO AIR   GROWS LIKE BONE

OR NAIL [STOP] HONEST SOIL [STOP]

WHEELS   RUSTED SINKS   BROKEN POTS   THE ART

WE LEAVE BEHIND AS

REMEMBERED

WE BREATHE [STOP]

WHO CLINGS OVER THERE

TO ASPHALT EXISTENCE [QUERY]

NO LACK OF POTENTIAL   ONLY

OF COURAGE [STOP] FREEDOM   THAT IS [STOP / STOP]

SAD [STOP]

HADEDAS   PAIRED WEATHER VANES

GROOM QUIETLY

SCRAWP THEIR WAY OFF

INTO PREHISTORY   TAKING US WITH THEM

[DON’T STOP / DON’T STOP / DON’T STOP]

[STOP]
