On July 1st, Amy Glynn guided a handful of curious writers and artists to spend time writing response poetry and prose to a painting or sculpture in the gallery.

This is Donna Kaulkin’s response to Adam Shaw’s oil, No Self No Other 66×60″

Who

by Donna Kaulkin

I.
Flesh rises
Unbending
Knowing when to stop

II.
The adder coils
All graceful intention Flesh freezes Cylinder snaps shut Flesh compressed Poised head
Drops Releases Fangs Release Toxin
Flesh Freezes

III.
Physician heal thyself Rod of Asclepius Caduceus
Medusa
Umbilicus
Snow

IV.
Cable frayed
Locked out of cyber chatter Thoughts ricochet
Echoes shatter silence
Just my ideas
No ruffle
No flounce
Real
Muslin shedding taffeta Standing on its own

V.
FleshCrayolacrayon Obsolete
Insisting it is still needed Uncorrect but
Not incorrect
Black brown yellow pink peach ash orange slate jaundice rose
Homage to Rothko
Colors of the world unite Partake of tea together Feed
Flesh
