I was a baby who’s sparkling spit
leaked out of little lips that lead to a throat filled with:
blood,
love,
poems and organs.
Little lungs that breathed
so clean.

I got older and my heart exploded
from all the pretty things I saw when your eyelids would lift:
playgrounds,
grass and diamonds,
tongues tracing body seams,
paper dreams.

I want to keep your soft mouth so wet.
With help from heavy rocks that I place inside my dress,
I will sink beneath the waves in your chest.
I will get to the start
of your heart.

I made this in 2012. It is incredibly strange to look at, now.

This year will be all about making things. It’s always been about that for me, but I have more motivation and inspiration now than ever. This move into a really inspiring community of friends will help me move mountains with my creativity. Everything will be okay.

I have an image in the Finding The Light exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, VT. It is on view through July 25th and there is also a catalog of the exhibition available for purchase. Wish I could be at the opening next week to meet all the other artists!
