long lost

always watching out that window- when the place burned down, when m. walked down the street covered by an umbrella, when i threw myself off the staircase, when the only color in the sky was purple.  i never think about it now.

*****

other people working on me/keep my face on my face/expired sunscreen/they turn once more/chase the neighbour/diet of potatoes and leftover birthday cake/and seriously contemplating never answering the phone ever again.

 

happy birthday and all the rest of it.

playing somewhere over the rainbow from my wind-up music box at the age of 4

while at the unemployment office with my mom.

spinning and singing, while everyone else sat there down on their luck.

she says the irony was too much to handle.

thanks for sharing old/new memories.

leave an imprint of my face every week when my massage is over.

just skin (pale or medium tone) and eyes (black). all that’s there.

then i curse myself/or the makeup/or both.

thankfully none of the humor/privilege/bullshit/sadness is lost on me.

“When work is genuinely new and strong,” as he [American art scholar Meyer Schapiro] put it, “only a few sensitive people recognize it.” Usually, true enthusiasm is ignited by fellow artists. Later, word spreads to ever-enlarging circles of critics, scholars, and museum people, and lastly to the public.
