Don’t Get Me Started

“The Elephant in the Room Juggles.” With no visual imagination, the wannabe painter’s mind is a pictorial void. The Arabic alphabet rescues the moment. It’s always there, where he can think it. After the fact, the pachydermic metaphor imported from his mental Madagascar-place, where nothing makes no sense, becomes sensible.

On Squirrels

I don’t defend creationism but
sometimes it’s hard to get
my head around the notion that
one bit of protoplasm put
on a bird suit, another a people suit,
and don’t get me started
on squirrels. Have you ever noted
how one can scamper up and scoot
down sheer verticals like a bat
out of who knows what?

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
