Poem up at The Ekphrastic Review

My poem “repostory” was among those chosen to accompany the painting “Alacena”, by Maria Izquierdo, at The Ekphrastic Review. You can see the artwork and read it, along with the rest of those selected here.

I am always drawn to Mexican art, but I have no references at hand to cut and collage, so my art is more in the spirit of my words than an exploration of Izquierdo’s painting.

As is this song that keeps running through my head by Tracy Chapman.

My thanks once again to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for supporting my work and the interaction between the visual and written arts.

    The poem’s bluntness can be a wake-up call. It connects for me as it relates to an event that happened a few years ago. The collage sends a message also in its clumped chaos. Nicely done. Congratulations on having your submissions accepted.

    A wonderful poem, Kerfe. I felt the heaviness of things, of wants, of life while reading your words. Well done.
