Hi, did any one write poems about my work? If so, where can I read them.
Thanks,

Julie, I was inspired by your rendering of "Red".

If you post permission for me to use that, I would be happy to post it in open with my accompaniment.

I confess I was drawn to that one, as "Red" was a lesson I first undertook at the University of New Orleans.

I was handed a box of charcoal, chalk, and kneadable eraser and told to "do Red".



(I got an A- for "nice attempt")

so let me know, k?

I will post only with your permission.

Head Study


In that glance
She saw herself
As she is
And would be after

And someone in time
Will stop, and wonder
Why—he has no words

Sunflowers



Where once young men
Came to the door—
When all was summer

An old woman
The small gray house
With yellow flowers

Bike


A forgotten bike—
snow
on both pedals

Childhood


Consciousness
Without comment

Sunset—
Above a parking lot
The colored sky

White House


There
Still
In a corner
The white house

A black and white dog
Within a chain link fence
Late autumn
Withered grasses
A one car garage

Night
The moon
A lamp going on

A long red coat
Light brown hair

How I feel . . .
The falling snow

Sunday Evening


You look out your own window
There in the dim lamp light
Is the corner where we waited
For our bus to arrive

On the high picket fence
Local events are announced
On paper that seems spectral
In a veil of blue

And now that we know,
(Except for the last two),
What our numbers are
Isn’t it odd to find ourselves here

With that dog
Whose name we’ve forgotten
Barking at stars  An amber moon
Just rising above the roofs

smile...no way I could top that John.

and Julie, know that if I could, I would buy "Red".

Your work is incredible and inspiring, and I feel a particular affinity to that one.

I was really moved by your oil painting of "the Steeple" in the darkness that was the beacon in the night,so I thought I'd give a stab at representing what I thought it meant.

Here is the link to my interpretation of the aforementioned painting:

WOW these are great!

I'd like to read the RED poem.

Also, the link that you posted was dead so I couldn't read that poem.

I put out a newsletter 4 times a year. Would it be alright if I use one or two of these poems in a future newsletter. It all depends on space but it might be a nice touch to add one every so often. Full credit would be given to the writer.

inspired by julie sulzen’s
“ice”

cold the executioner’s rope
slowly metals my neck…
like loose boards laid intentionally
rickety ol’ cross timbers that i fell through
loop holes of snow
taking reincarnate steps,
to the grave where i’m laid
out in transcripts
for  3 o’clock workers
biting their lips…
stopping only to count
the rest of their days…

winter climbs out
of the eyes of apollo
thank god for his
enthusiastic hum bugs
leaving two great symbols
on the sun
in the shape of snow angels
with both eyes open
and
a cleavage holding only
clean-cut interests
in man’s fierceness

the heiress of snow
leaving winter work
lingering outside
frozen windows
of shivering teeth
alone…
trembling
wearing north walls

lunch-time manners
all frozen in discreetly folded handkerchiefs
white teeth of snow brings
a flush to the cheeks
dusting temperaments
on their way to maturity

snow showers permeate right through the doors
of indecisions…mine,
causing death,
destruction
winter loneliness
with
frowning
colorless
sympathetic fingers
of ice cycles
pressing life
into the stuff I was made of
whispering to my tears
and heartache
“here you are, here you are”
alive and well

Julie,

As regards my stuff, you can use any of
it you want,
(and you can credit it to: "some guy").

You are an artist.

John
