Painter of Words

“Painting is poetry which is seen and not heard, and poetry is a painting which is heard but not seen.”
I am a painter of words--

the mind can create
visions of both

but the hand
is more skilled 
reproducing typed words 
than it is
with recreating physical images
in nonverbal form
including handwriting.

    From the New York Times
    The changing art world

    Museums are including more diverse artists and forms as they try to find audiences in a distracted world, according to a Times special section exploring the changes. Here are some examples:

    The Guggenheim Museum, New York: The Guggenheim now has a poet in residence, the first at an institution devoted to visual art. The museum will soon have “poem signs” in stairwells, the rotunda and the columns in the cafe, and poetry readings over a bullhorn.
