bled tragedies
declared protests,
voiced cynicism.


But the world went on
as it does
over the limits of your mind.


So when you grew old
and came close to the edge
the spotlight of
your knowing
grew deep into yourself


where there was joy
and you were free to be
the clown they
never wanted you to be;


to fill your lungs
with laughter,

and dance


as far
as you could dance


  on top of hills.

You look in amazement
at your body that keeps
you alive
and you ask who is “you”
that goes on living?


Who delights in the sights
your eyes can see,
listens to the sounds
you hear,
and understands
there is no understanding
beyond the names of things?


Who won’t allow your breath
to stop from breathing
your thoughts
to discontinue
thinking?   


Once you tried earnestly  
to comprehend it all.
You used familiar terms:
you sat yourself in ashes  

Each of these fifteen, 12" x 12" images, carved in linoleum blocks, was printed in a limited edition of 20 at Prof. Allan Larkin’s Atelier. After lengthy research, Prof. Larkin implemented a special hydraulic press to create the editions. This was done in order to achieve consistency, sharpness, and   color   saturation,   while   printing  the   relatively   soft   and   unsteady   linoleum  plates.
