Coffee and Tea 鴛鴦偶寄
by Holly Lee

The Thinker (after Rodin)

Is it really
our time has past
could't catch up
don't really want to
is it really
a backward idea

Is it only
nostalgia
wouldn't fall behind
don't really want to
is it really
a clever idea

Then is it safe
to stay still
or just to swim
in familiar water
it might not
be a bad idea

Or, is it fair
to get despair
when all our lifetimes
can now be shared
is it not
an uplifting idea

ADJACENCY
Writings by Gary Michael Dault
based on Lee Ka-sing's photographs
from LIGHT READINGS series


(Lee Ka-sing - Head profile and the moving smoke)

 

Adjacency #133: Your Flesh

Your Flesh


your flesh
sprinkled by the flight
of a thousand birds of paradise*
thus anointed
can fly by itself

like a kite
without wind

your flesh
haunted by the fragrance
of a hundred perfumes
can rise like mist
and waft from the window
to float over the parking lot

Andre Breton, “L’Air de l’eau” (quoted in Anna
Balakian, Surrealism: the road to the
absolute (New York: Noonday Press, 1958) p.138.

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No.194. Bird Nesting in Armageddon.

He had finished this small painting last night and then couldn't sleep at all because of the anguish it caused him. The biblical concept of Doomsday seemed all too imminent these days (how he wished it could have remained only within the annals of apocalyptic possibility), with the fat fingers of mad dictatorial man-children hovering like vultures above their red buttons. The nightmarish little painting made him feel smaller and smaller, the longer he gazed at it.
