The cranberry juice comes out of the eye.
The wind cries to Mary and shakes coconut trees on the beach. Waves crash into the sand. B l u e parrots fall on
their head and choke in the ashes. The red and green birds sing dramatic poems. Farther away, alien grasshoppers
trace circles in crop fields. Peacefulness comes back into the studio. Dust and buds are now fixed on the canvas.
My stare is anchored to that devastated landscape, horrified by SO MUCH violence, but fascinated by the
promise of something new. Where does all this come
from; my beastly nature?
Whatever, I had to let it go. As a mountain, I needed to let
the torrent flow. Let the volcano erupt. Let it blow.
Humanity slowly emerges from that chaos. Figures
appear and disappear between the curves
and colors. They still travel in vagueness.
How many layers of paint will it take before I can fix them on paper? Water boils ...
A lava fountain pours into the sea; steam and whistling.
“Why does my house had to burn” shouts an old woman to the furious sky. Time helps for the capture. Thinking does not. Pet food might help. Potato jelly!
