a headache
came to me
from around
a coffee cup

a throbbing
in a pencil sharpener
or a can opener

and lengthening
at last
over to where
I sat

Sign as Tree (2020)


Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Mexico (November, 2017) – We peregrinated about to the myriad of galleries and museums, sauntering around in and out of artist studios. Lackadaisically meandering with a sense of awe, paralyzed in our attempt to absorb the stupefying eye-candy everywhere. Our surroundings simply marvelled; from the magical alebrijes to the strange exvoto art creations, the hand stitched textiles, the wealth of wild flora, even an impressive terracotta tile wall and least I forget, the feast of ice-cream.

Some Trees
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault

Number 57

I've been reading some Emerson and Thoreau lately, specifically Thoreau's essay, "Walking" and Emerson's famous "Nature," both bound together in a handsome paperback edition (Beacon Press, 1991) with charming wood engravings by  Thomas W. Nason.

In "Nature," Emerson writes "The greatest delight which the fields and woods minister, is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and the vegetable.  I am not alone and unacknowledged.  They nod to me, and I to them.  The waving of the boughs in the storm, is new to me and old.  It takes me by surprise, and yet is not unknown.  Its effect is like that of a higher thought or a better emotion coming over me, when I deemed I was thinking  justly or doing right."
