☞”all writers are robbers”

not apology
but precursor

it’s the sighting that propels me the visioning
a languaging the time
to look at, a way to stand under and marvel
and may be

any way
in, and
a way out

do I need to say
if it looks like you it may be.
if it doesn’t, maybe
it will next time


☞thank you bill, for that incite, insight, and permission

but she did write a poem (freedom) which was
published in The Liberator, Sept. 1920,
and was included in Masses-Liberator; an anthology of verse from The Masses, and the Liberator, Genevieve Taggard, editor. 1925.

I printed this as part of Iota Press Print Poetry series
on a vandercook proof press
erhardt 12 pt; canson mi tientes paper (amber)
daniel k smith lithograph ink (black with more than a dash of red)

title page: atlanta, kennerley italic & devinne; colophon: cloister old style & deepdene italic

a few scraps and the spine gap

March 5, 2014 § 1 Comment

well I finally got over the inertia of uncertainty and launched into just making the damn book, maybe courage gained from seeing remembering understanding we all start from not knowing exactly how and there’s nothing like having to solve the problems of doing something that gets one, allows one, helps one, spurs one to in fact solve them

and the rain helped too and little bit of scrounged book cloth and scraps of paper I’d saved for just this and so, a dash of wabi sabi and lo a little book, first attempt and by&large, it worked!

glue where it belongs, spine gap and endpapers in tune, opens and closes like it ought. ok then. a book with hard cover case.

✳︎ ❇︎

which is not to say, I don’t foresee spine gap issues in my future, because I’m not sure I “get it” you know like you read instructions and they make no sense but you can start seeing how it is supposed to work and so you just keep on keeping on andso this one was with a wing and a prayer no cat interference and little to lose

I see lots of little practice books going hither and yon as I work toward some kind of mastery.

and now I know  what a ‘teacher’ can help me with

artwork playing toward
artplay working toward

balance which is not the same as symmetry
play, as in movement
improv as in air
breath as in room to move
perspective as in bias
context as in access
instruction as in form
counterpoint as in balance not the same as symmetry

and the along the way which has nothing to do with getting there,
or arrival,
the planning which has everything and nothing to do with the doing
the doing which has nothing and everything to do with the planning
the intent which has nothing to do with the unintentional
and everything in between

just wondering
