If you listen carefully, you might hear an idea being born.

"I seem to have to do it elaborately wrong
and with many conceits first.
Then maybe
I can attack and deflate
my pomposity
and arrive at something straight and simple.

Buenos




I went for a visit
but it was not long enough
the streets saturated
with history,
their texture
rich with political vibration
the cafes
filled with conversation
and not about the
newest pocket book
or
instagram pic.

How do we not know you
up here in our Americas?
Why do we not notice?

gorgeous lands
vibrant literature
small delectable coffees
secret
puertas cerradas
conversation
that seems more important,
more pertinent

people
that exude the life they live
older people
visible
out there
not hidden.

And of course
a freshly made
orange juice
in the park.

Portraits of a Place

Lisa Kellner; As Night
As Night; Lisa Kellner



To Paint:

I remember
the shape of things.

The corners I turned
The darkness that unfolded.

The way the air felt
Back then.

The smell of night
The deafening quiet.

Consoling
in its insolence.

Sharp and dull
at the same.

Memorialize the details.

gentle curve

in the land

on the shoulder

in the living

on the organism

one inch

one mile

infinitum
