inside looking out -1-

Box 1

staring

through molten sand

longing

for the round world

beyond

the square world

within

mangled perception

of hobbled cells

atrophied

eyes see only glass

without

finding and

lost in searching

for more than was given

before

inside looking out

after

the box

 

/poem and art by clinock / art: sculpted and painted clay heads in windowed box / each head approx. 3 inches high /

box 1-2

This series is based on the shared stories and personal experiences of people I work with in an art studio attached to a mental health facility. I express what I have heard as both fact and creative metaphor.
