  1. Early Valentine to Joe

    Isnít that the idea
    to step away from
    ideas a stain
    painting or
    a mood out of
    formed color
    when words become
    too recognizable
    too representational
    except by this
    magical example
    all I might possibly
    believe is to keep
    working it.

    helen frankenthaler, robert rauschenberg even while haunted by jasper johns and ellsworth kelly and so along with a dozen or so more and the sculptor martin puryear and the surfaces kiki’s father david smith (appropriate name for a metal man) carved or engraved or etched on the surfaces of his sculptures i feel in this piece of yours their culminating gift. edward mycue
