In June 2014 this was the final submission of my ‘The 100’ series that I began in 2012 in celebration of my 100th post on WP.
Over a two-year span I posted 100 Text and Art artworks, this creative form being at the heart of my blog.
My intention was to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists, from my ex students and from my own hand.
With this post it was done
completed, concluded, fulfilled,
finished and finalized.
Remember the endings of those romantic,
enigmatic, exotic and erotic
Time to put on hats and coats,
shuffle through popcorn detritus and cola cans,
leave the cosy sentiments of make-believe,
the warmth of shared fantasies and holding hands,
the smells of perfume, upholstery and sweat,
and stumble through swinging doors
into the glare and noises of the street,
stunned for a moment, floating between
uncertain which is real.
