This excerpt of work is from NUTRITIONAL FEED, a series of poems inspired by the paintings of New York artist David Lukowski. The full-length collection of texts and images will be published in 2007 by Tupelo Press. Lukowski's paintings are abstract narratives reflective of childhood and the American experience. My texts for this collaboration treat the paintings as ekphrastic objects, tracking the process of eye, mind, and heart. Please visit Admit 2 for more information and samples from the collection.
