Arts and Crafts:  A Warning
by Cathy Colman

An instant jumped out of me
as if I were giving birth to time.  I realized
the past was gone and what remained?
Only salvage, a ghost-clutch
of fresh asphalt, steamy after summer rain,
love’s jump-start engine, and the coyote’s compromise-the look
of a kind dog-who-is-not-a-dog, like a lover I had
who smelled of goodness, who brought loaves
and fishes, change from other countries
that spilled across my dresser,
who decorated me
silver tracery, but who practiced
the piano on other women,
until my body flayed out and became
a table of musical triads.
I read an article that said once you used
it lodged in the floorboards, the rugs,
tracked everywhere in the house,
years later you’d still find a tiny skin-glint.
You can never get rid of it.

Cinema Verite by Dan Gerber

Often my life seems like a foreign film
through which I keep glancing down at the subtitles
to see how much of what the beautiful,
sad woman on the screen is saying
reflects what the beautiful, sad woman in me
would have her say.

Dan Gerber on David Starkey’s show Creative Community

Coming to the Arcade May 14 is  Paul Gutherie and Melinda Palacio and the series closes for 2011 on June 18 with Patty Seyburn and Gaby LeMay.
