Marcia Arrieta


recreated

illusions

intentionally

precision


*

a spider walks across the table


*

in the labyrinth there is stability


*

at the sea, we observe the moon & tide

Point and Line to Plane Kandinsky





beneath text

dirt
knives
scissors
unkempt sheets
blankets
cages
keys


[   investigation
       without
                 analysis    ] 


iconoclast
rhetoric

landscape
conjecture  

measure the wingspan
of the pterodactyl




within the map museum


1000 artist books

hourglass sand


heads made of wings

bodies of embroidered handkerchiefs




the artist


comingling past/present
the future as tree

making notations here/there
subliminal wave(s)

Cornell—untitled (CARTE GEOGRAPHIQUE DE LA LUNE) 1936
Varo—Spiral Transit 1962





in search of an empty white page


it was a day of distractions

living in clouds between collages & poetry

asleep in the forest

reading of Eleanor of Aquitaine

a blue pen lost & then found

as if the goddess—part ocean part marsh—

who lived on the island could impart wisdom or perhaps cohesion

crosses & hearts & amethyst stones

the light through mountains

nevertheless



Marcia Arrieta's second book of poetry, archipelago counterpoint, is now available from BlazeVOX. Her first book, triskelion, tiger moth, tangram, thyme, was published by Otoliths in 2011. She edits and publishes Indefinite Space, a poetry/art journal.
