    • Thanks – it’s a theme I’m working – a style of combining poetry with pictures. Defintiely inspired by Kenneth Patchen and Colin McCann… But my tools are very different.

  2. Very Dalai-esque with the melting structures.

    Do we ever really know whose sins we are atoning for at any given time?

    • Well, there’s a short list and a long list… I think the long list might go on forever – I’m pretty sure I’m atoning for my great-grandmother’s sins and by default her great grandmother’s. On the other hand, we’re all atoning for the sins of vanity committed by both our favourite and least favourite politicians. And dog-walkers.

    • I assumed you meant the sins they commit in not cleaning up after their charges . . . or is it something more terrible?

      • Well, there is that – the most often, obvious and obnoxious. There is also the sin of permitting their charges to sniff at ones privates in public. Or surrounding an innocent so they find themselves caught in chains and leather – forced into bondage as it were… with animals… I shudder… I am sure there is more… But I must run away from it for the moment to focus on other, equally equanimous issues.
