THE WANDERING

60″ x 60″

“It’s one of those things a person has to do; sometimes a person has to go a very long distance
out of his way to come back a short distance correctly.” Edward Albee

THE ENORMITY OF THE UNIVERSE

The second praying mantis
of my 60 years
had a message for me
at Stewart’s Mobil on route 1.
“if I can arrive from the back woods
here on
this gas pump handle,
staring at you,
surely
you can do something
no less strange and wondrous,
and people will ask
more questions
Isn’t that the point?”
