            "De Fense" - wood, cardboard, acrylic, markers
I'm trying to figure out the painting - the structure - support - is there an image - is it an object first - can the structure support be separated from the image  - should it .

Lifting weights
of iron.
Lifting unliftable weights
of spirit.
Lifting to get in laughable shape.
Lifting to remember,
to forget.
Lifting the blanket
to see the daylight
Lifting the books
to see words
lined up like brass bullets
or blankshots
depending on who pulled
the trigger.
Lifting up shorts
to cover
naked bunghole.
Lifting up the brush
the pen
the sword
the bread
the toast
to all
who must
For the mystery
of lifting yourself
of bed
on a daily basis.
I lift my glass
I lift the rose
to this secret
of perseverance
Lift off.

I see my feet
belonged to an eleven year old-
barefoot scars and all
My teeth reflected back
to grade skool photo
smile show the gap
mom said
now show the implant.
I comb some
eighteen year old head
in that old mirror
and wonder why gray.
Where did the bags, sags
extra flesh and weakness
come in the mail?
I cannot see
the brain cells
tho I know
many have gone
before me
This inventory must wait -
I have mail.

Believe   it    or    not  
 I     am     still

 12x12 inches = 4x4 feet - ambition says it is 1/3 done...I would like to see it 12x12 feet - which means 144 of these is there enough gas in the tank to go there?  I'm gonna let it sit for a bit and recharge...
