Where the mind will take us……

Marina Abramović’s – Imponderabilia – Kitchen
art gallery domestication
squeeze – between – your eyes
push past
turn your head and cough


then swim Rio
swim 2016 against taboo
against ego
searching a smooth ride
a glide – a race
between two smiles


let’s go to the museum tonight
wear baggie – ideas
and pretend we don’t see
art on walls
standing on arched – floors


syllabus – UN – Dennis Lee
i’ll stay home
and read…….

* Swim Rio – Regarding 2016 summer Olympics in Rio

* Swim 2016 against taboo – Fu Yuanhui a Chinese swimmer in the Rio Olympics has made headlines regarding certain ‘female’ taboos

* between two smiles – During the men’s 200-meter semifinal race, Canadian sprinter Andre De Grasse nearly caught up with the Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt. Bolt gave a glance and a grin, as the two crossed the finish line smiling and laughing

* Dennis Lee – famous Canadian poet. Wrote a book of poetry entitled, ‘UN’ which Quill and Quire wrote, ‘ UN, is no book for children. Unless, that is, you think children should be prepared for 21st-century adulthood with frank discussions of cultural brain-death and planetary extinction.’
