  What if a much of a which of a wind (for ee cummings)   Mixed media 15 1/2"H x 31"Diameter  what if a much of a which of a wind  gives the truth to summer's lie;  bloodies with dizzying leaves the sun  and yanks immortal stars awry?  Blow king to beggar and queen to seam  (blow friend to fiend: blow space to time)  --when skies are hanged and oceans drowned,  the single secret will still be man  what if a keen of a lean wind flays  screaming hills with sleet and snow:  strangles valleys by ropes of thing  and stifles forests in white ago?  Blow hope to terror; blow seeing to blind  (blow pity to envy and soul to mind)  --whose hearts are mountains, roots are trees,  it's they shall cry hello to the spring  what if a dawn of a doom of a dream  bites this universe in two,  peels forever out of his grave  and sprinkles nowhere with me and you?  Blow soon to never and never to twice  (blow life to isn't: blow death to was)  --all nothing's only our hugest home;  the most who die, the more we live.

what if a much of a which of a wind
gives the truth to summer's lie; 
bloodies with dizzying leaves the sun
and yanks immortal stars awry? 
Blow king to beggar and queen to seam
(blow friend to fiend: blow space to time) 
--when skies are hanged and oceans drowned, 
the single secret will still be man

what if a keen of a lean wind flays
screaming hills with sleet and snow: 
strangles valleys by ropes of thing
and stifles forests in white ago? 
Blow hope to terror; blow seeing to blind
(blow pity to envy and soul to mind) 
--whose hearts are mountains, roots are trees, 
it's they shall cry hello to the spring

what if a dawn of a doom of a dream
bites this universe in two, 
peels forever out of his grave
and sprinkles nowhere with me and you? 
Blow soon to never and never to twice
(blow life to isn't: blow death to was) 
--all nothing's only our hugest home; 
the most who die, the more we live.

  The Wish to Escape into Inner Space (For May Swenson)   Mixed media 13"H x 18"Diameter  All is too open all expands, explodes and scampers out and speeds apart. What was a ball, and solid, now balloons, the outline thin, the core weightless  What was full, and held to a pole centripetal what gathered, while it spun, coherent mass, seized light, shape, ordered time and motion, worked upon itself its own proportion: to be round, smooth in its orbit, beautifully closed-  spurts loose, erratic, widens, torn from its core, feels itself emptied, floats detached... is dragged through galactic vapors: the cold pain of unwanted growth.

The Wish to Escape into Inner Space (For May Swenson)

All is too open
all expands, explodes
and scampers out and speeds apart.
What was a ball, and solid, now balloons,
the outline thin, the core weightless

What was full, and held to a pole centripetal
what gathered, while it spun, coherent mass,
seized light, shape, ordered time and motion,
worked upon itself its own proportion:
to be round, smooth in its orbit,
beautifully closed-

spurts loose, erratic, widens,
torn from its core,
feels itself emptied, floats detached...
is dragged through galactic vapors:
the cold pain of unwanted growth.
