Marcia Arrieta

orange nasturtium

disentangle the wings from the images
islands await through oaks & river streams
books speak  the art will suffice

everything is disjointed saltine crackers bills weeds crocodiles collages furies a grotto & a vision of the Virgin Mary caminos trains bells dragonflies snails
silent notebooks across time history memory hand-sewn
response to the unexpected reduce to rectangles/circles * abandon ideas paint * fields of time minimalize expand
waves & trees & moons after Klee rotation still life flower ships & gardens the goldfish the fugue the dance
shattered windows brick walls & blue tape a sculpture of time & ice & women rowing & the question “can you eat napkins?” in transit outside the cave in rain feathers threads
Marcia Arrieta enjoys days away walking along the ocean in California. Her recent work can be found in or is forthcoming from The American Journal of Poetry, The Meadow, Spectra, The Inflectionist Review, Osiris, & Borrowed Solace, among others. A book of her collages & poetry through time waves is currently available from Arteidolia Press, and her fourth poetry collection within sky is forthcoming from BlazeVOX. She edits & publishes Indefinite Space, a poetry/art journal.
