Sail away in your mind to the smallest place you can imagine


From Monkey’s Wedding, Lucky Fish Press

Ants on their leaf boats sail the swollen gutters. They bear presents for the wedding being held under the trees at the edge of the city.

A life led under the human radar merely because you are small.

How I love to enlarge what is too small to notice or contract what is too big to understand…I read that it is on the macro level of the universe/big bang and the micro level of subatomic particles that the craziest discoveries are being made which are subverting our mundane understandings based on our senses. The very smallest bits of everything, they postulate, are vibrating elastic bands- the super string theory.

They warrant a painting these super strings, maybe an embroidery?
