One thought on “Elevated Figures

  1. What is Elevation but two legged skeletal figures sheathed in soot grey
    perched, back bent, on platform puff of pink; perched also spread-legged on the abyss of purple ribbed coil and turquoise clouded cat head.
    The rapture of momentary suspension: head about the sky is felt, about their feet, nothing–dried oil representations of the insubstantial, lacking foundation, balloons of color really, and white gaping crevices. We know then
    that every moment of elevation is attached to the precariousness of instant loss.
    Yesterday, Emily Dickinson pal, fell broke back, hospitalized ; today is paraplegic.
    That is what I see.
