Affect #27: Ode to my mom


I celebrate you every line gone crossed and all the eyes that get their dots I celebrate you every page post it and drawing letter jots I celebrate you every plot planted and roots grounded and bent I celebrate you every watch unlost and time well spent

My mom on a metro in Beijing.  The only other time I’ve been on a metro with my mom was in Madrid.

I didn’t use punctuation in the poem because I hope the reader enjoys finding the meter in the syntax and rhyme.  There might be some bumps or jolts along the way, and that makes sense for a train ride.

If you’re in the LA area, cruise to the closing reception of my solo show in Little Tokyo:

Check out the Disclosure Page to see a chronological evolution of my blog and art.

I post twice a week in two sorts of ways:  I share new art/discussions about the process of works in progress, and I post segments with Comic Lorna in my audiobio comic series called, Affect.
