strands, pathways, gravity

ARTIST STATEMENT

strands
unfettered
clipped
shrivel
pair
limbic
thick still pooled
plug
reaching slender tenuous
missing
longing
the single
pure
strand
bossy brains
clog
desire evaporates
seeds
twirling
poised
embryonic thread
limpid pathway
lithe
gravity
wandering nerve
vagus
affect
instinct
where is the single strand
thoughts tucked away
muddled buried quiet second
suspended language
pure belly
floating
lovely
hold
drip
him
me

-Martha Russo, 1999
