INSIDE OUT


derek beaulieu and I are playing around with "translations" of Christian Bok's Eunoia. Above is something I did with the beginning of the A chapter. We're just figuring out what to do. We're at that time in a collaboration when you haven't even set the terms of engagement, the canvas or the image to be worked on, the nature of the interaction or the project. You might note a few changes to Christian's original.

NATURE POEM

even on the sidewalk
I want to be a nature poet

this summer light is nature
so is the air and
the rain-soaked road

scooping to pick after my dog
the bag warm as my dog’s insides
is nature

yes it’s nature inside
and out
here in Hamilton, Ontario

nature inside and out
this poem
