A Voice without a Veil

by fyarlgiles

458691_9634768_b

With a tongue sharp

and unafraid

I  pierce

through

  muted in-betweens

scarlet hues

through

browns and blues

with only modesty

 to lose

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart.

I am,

I am,

I am.”

Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom

as it shifts and cracks

Where secrets lie in the border fires

in the humming wires

On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man

In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

You’re one microscopic cog

in his catastrophic plan

Designed and directed by

his red right hand

Lyrics by Nick Cave

A Body in Bloom

when water falls up

flesh unfolds

brazenly exposed

newly liberated limbs

satiate virgin skin

Sea of Poppies

by meaghanmerrifield

poppies II

seductive syrupy sea

embraces heavily

crimson encircles the body slowly

how sweet

to dream

indefinitely

Hush

Pull  fire from your face till you’re boarded and blue

with eyes dark as stone

stiff

and icy to touch

though melodies spout from your heart

red and true

be quiet as moonlight

for songs strip you bare

“Progress” by Athalia Johnson

 I feel that’s it’s harder to begin a project because it’s frustrating to work out which part to work on first and create the structure for what will become a finished piece. Finishing a project is easier because you’re adding details and final touches and are more clear-headed about what you want the final outcome to be.

No Room for Pierre

No Room for Pierre by Angie Hoover-Hillhouse

I started with the cartoon of the  lonely, french babyman. When he was done, I noticed that his expression was very dreary and  disheartened, so I added the tub filled with others just like him enjoying a group bath. The backgrounds that I drew ended up distracting from the absurdity, so I moved on without completing the piece. I really would like to blow it up and hang it in my kitchen one day.
