    In my recent prints and drawings, I use images of man-made structures in transition as a metaphor to communicate transience and impermanence, and perhaps our desire for permanence and immortality. They are either in the process of being torn down, built up, or simply in some kind of a state of change. It may be due to time, neglect, development, or forces of nature. They are drawn from the everyday environment I observe in Kansas. I am using this imagery as a metaphor for myself as a person and an artist.

    Please come to read a poem you've written, a poem by a favorite poet, or just to listen to poems on a different theme. And bring your friends! You are welcome to read poems in languages other than English, but you should provide an English translation as well. Because we believe the empathetic community created by sharing ANY kind of poetry can lead to peace and social justice, we welcome all poems, not just those that touch directly on those themes.  Poetry for Peace readings are eligible for the First Year Cup.
