Marcia Arrieta



small books of poems.   minimal drawings.
recycle the bottles.   throw out the trash.
there is noise everywhere.   I can’t sleep at night.
there is a pause in reveal.
two points are aligned in the abstract.
please do not ask what it all means.

nonchronological pencil drawing poems
dreams in blue reasons rectangles a canvas
a painting images objects ideas—shells
pinecones stones—transformation stages

I catch empty white pages

restless the hours

the birds are silent

I must examine the wind

thinking furrow runaway oaks stories
past strength shadowed power
speaking bears fish owls
as if candor could delete the surreal forest
