Reflections on Life through poetry, essays and photos
I just completed a mixed media assemblage titled “Chaos Theory,” but living up to its name, I forgot to photograph it before I took it to the gallery. In lieu of it, please click on the first photo to enlarge and read the story of all of these other examples of chaos!
The King of Chaos. I was on my way to a local hotel/restaurant to read my Trump poem from a few days ago when I saw a woman selling this pinata beside the road. I braked, turned around and went to buy it. A man, seeing me buying it, stopped to buy one as well. “Does it have anything inside?” He asked. “No, you have to cut it open in back and fill it,” I answered. “What should we fill it with?” asked his female companion. “I’d suggest filling it with baloney,” I answered. Both the poem and the pinata were a great hit at the reading and the editor of the local paper asked for a copy.
The chaos of trying to get work ready for a group show.
The chaos of repairing pieces and labeling.
The chaos of things left over to put away after my last trip to the states.
Every time I leave home, I swear that I organize this desk drawer, and every time I come home, it looks like this. Is it elves, earthquakes or a faulty memory?
Since the retablo I couldn’t produce when I first did this prompt is now hanging on my wall, I put a photo of it on my blog, and you can see it HERE.
