So many souls sacrificed for Mexico,
May 5th. 1862,
Cinco de Mayo.
So many souls sacrificed
every minute, every day, every year,
in every nation,
at every beat of the drum,
at every beat of the heart
so many souls.

Yet To Be Confessed
Art and poem by Clinock.
Touch, 8 x 8″ (20 x 20 cm), mixed media relief in cradled panel.
“Dorothy was at the sideboard, breaking eggs and spilling them into a bowl. Just watching the oval things crack in her white fingers and spill forth with a golden plop created a series of small explosions inside me. My calves shuddered as she scrambled them with a fork and they turned yellow like her hair. She poured a bit of cream into the mixture and the silken smoothness of the descending cream had me reeling. I wanted to say, ‘Dorothy Parrish, I love you’, to take her in my arms, to lift the bowl of scrambled eggs above our heads and pour it over our bodies, to roll on the red tiles with her, smeared with the conquest of eggs, squirming and slithering in the yellow of love”.

two foolish ones
a meaningful conversation in the night
on the doorstep of spring
slow syllables, emerging, fragmenting, dissolving
dance dark and dizzying waltzes
falling under starless skies
they cannot agree who has the key to the door
it was never locked
two foolish ones in the dark
struggling to speak
while beyond the door
quiet brightness waits
and then there’s Hollywood

WEAR YOUR BONNET WITH PRIDE — HAPPY MASH-UP EASTER!!!
“May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on…”
However you celebrate this time of year I wish you love and peace.
The circle turns and the light is reborn,
how wonderful is that…
See you all next year.
