Still from Entanglements

Inside Outside

There are always those of us who need help….
More or less so
Some, raging lunatics
Some fuming suffragettes
Some with no impulse control
Some ready to weep
Some running marathons
Some marching in streets
Some planting gardens
Some tending sheep
Watching films
Making music
Sleeping it off.
Most, sickly with reason
Or poets casting seeds about
Empty church spires.
Tired and alone
Inside libraries
Where no animals are allowed
We share the single heart of
A rabbit or wren
Hopping toward safety.

About Sights Unseen

The mysterious paintings made in 2013 came from my waking dreams over many years. As I worked, I found myself in strange territory and felt I needed a deeper understanding of the recorded history of the slave trade, the middle passage, slave narratives, Jim Crow, and the ongoing civil rights struggle. I read as much as I could, including the incredible novels of Richard Wright, Toni Morrison and Zora Neale Hurston. I also found the writings of historian, Craig Stevens Wilder; Detroit activist, Grace Lee Boggs; social justice and human rights professor of law, Bryan Stevenson, and many more thinkers and writers, too many to count, who brought insight to the intuitive narrative I had begun. Most of the reading was hard to bear.

Still, I don’t pretend to know very much of the written history and I know nothing at all of the experience. But because I’m interested in the attempt to make things better, I aim for empathy and perhaps the possible healing that goes with it.
