A Beautiful Mind: Ignore the Little King Standing on Your Newspaper.


Michael Sowa's illustration for Little King December
offered by Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales
Poetry,
prose and rustling crows,
private worlds
of the mind,
imaginings unbridled -
subconscious theories.

Dream studies
free associate
no reason/
restriction
no society limits
surprise imagery.

Surreal
erotic objects
juxtaposed,
cleverly,
whimsically disregard
tradition.

Long shadows
mysterious light,
receding
in deep space
recall ominous settings
of media kings.


Inspired by James Voorhies essay on Surrealism: Department of European Paintings, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

  1. this is rather surreal...an imagination let run free in the fields without fences...the third leads us maybe to the dark..and then the media i imagine tips us over the end...
