abstraction s

I’ve seriously been thinking about erasing my header and bio and just writing something like “living dead girl”. That’s sad to me. I would change my status from my identity in Christ to my identity in my suicide. Wow. I need to just… Idk… Bury myself, not in the ground, but in his love. That’s so abstract though.

“He didn’t see an eucalyptus tree and those long beautiful leaves and think, ‘I want to interpret that in a sculpture.’ He made a sculpture, and he looked at it, and he saw that it looked kind of like eucalyptus leaves” – Sandy Rower 

Although often evocative, Calder’s titles are not guides for interpretation. The artist named his abstract sculptures after they were created simply as a means to identify or differentiate. “I give names to the things I’m working on just like license plates,” Calder once said. © 2017 Calder Foundation, New York / Artists Rights Society [ARS], New York)

I break my shins
inching backward
into his song-

/ I know little grace.

2.

he works so hard
to clear a path
for a clear mind,

/ it’s called sugar

& I would shred a kiss
into broken words
just to test

/ that he loves me;

3.

I would burn bonds
to sample a divide
just to taste

/ what is hidden.
