journeys/after remedios varo by Marcia Arrieta
journeys/after remedios varo
the spaces of art. unexpected. surreal.
chrysalislike. wheels & owls. veils.
the clockmaker & time. the mind
in the cupboard. clouds. streets.
despite form—discovery. create music.
in the spaces—light/darkness.
the forest floor. the words
are buried/emerge. juxtapose chance.
embroider color. create the birds.
words hidden in clouds. manuscripts of snow
& galleons. the compass/the sail.
magnificent trees—junipers. oaks.
plant the sunflower seeds. study the stars.
our footsteps in an empty corridor. outside
the blue door. the circles. the triangles.
survival imagination. brushstrokes red.
