Paper City Studios: PAPERWORKS

Chris Nelson and I collaborated on a sculpture/poetry piece for the Paper City Studios spring exhibition. From May 6 to June 4, Paper City showed interpretations of the theme, works on paper, by a variety of talented local and regional artists.

Dear City, City Love

     Even in Kyoto,
I feel the frames of your hollow
mills carved tenderly in my mind.

The white Washi paper door slides
wide to un-
                 fold tearoom into dewy grounded
garden -- as at home, City Love,

river rot sets deep
      into beam
until bricks crumble down-
ward to let light fall furiously within.
