Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault

In memory of my friend, painter Daniel Oxley, who died of cancer on June 19.

he loved colour
but it could not
hold him

he loved poetry
but the nets of language
broke

he watched
his canvases
bleaching into
ancient sails

he watched
his jars of paint
turn to water

his palette*
became a brittle
paper-thin
sheet of ivory

pain is
lonely
loss is
lonely

death is absurd

* I doubt whether Daniel actually used a palette (few painters do), but I needed an image for the realm of his art which death (this is an imagistic trope and not biographical fact) made progressively infra-thin (the word is Marcel Duchamp's)--to the point of closing.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

USA (February, 2018) – We spent part of the afternoon exploring The Broad; wandering between oversized Koons sculptures and whimsical Basquiat's, Lichtenstein's and Warhol's to name a few. The highlight felt like a nanosecond; inside one of the Kusama infinity installations, alone locked in a mirrored box full of string lights. It certainly marvelled the senses. After our curious carousal, I hopped across the street to admire one of Gehry's architectural wonders.
