The sculptor

one day you will appear
holding the veils of women
you've undressed,
who've undressed
for you,

the son you would not hold

bared flesh:
a newborn's
howling vision –

the son you saw
jutting fist against canyon,
an endless echo
of need -

an apparition

one day
you will regret
the man
you could not carve
out of this stone

Inspire Me Thursday has posted a challenge to create a visual representation of 'tears.' It must be the time of year, but it seemed like serendipity. I may break out the water colours.

Extinct e-card

Saturday, April 07, 2007


As some of you recall, I collaborated w. photographer Elizabeth Siegfried on a project called Extinct - a collection of poems and images exploring the loss of the natural world.

To make a long story short, we now have a show!

Extinct will be showcased at the G+ Gallery at the Gladstone in Toronto. The opening reception is on August 30th and my reading is scheduled for September 15th.

I'll be sending invitations this summer, so contact me: if you want to receive one.

Here's a statement summary:


EXTINCT is a sequence of thirteen images and poems that reflects upon the slow vanishing of the natural world and the possibility that we, as the sole destroyer of the earth, are causing our own extinction (if not literally, than certainly spiritually).

EXTINCT begins with immersion in water to the complete exposure on land; man is both basking in and hiding from the elements. It portrays humanity in a non elevated state, stripped of protection and power, all vulnerable.

As the sequence progresses, man becomes both the hunter and the hunted. The last image entitled Void returns full circle to the water, alluding to humankind’s potential end.

EXTINCT invites the viewer to ask what is happening to our planet and what is and is not our responsibility in that. Will we as a species become extinct and take every living thing with us?


I am heading to Newfoundland next week. Has anyone been?

I'll be sure to post photos when I return.
