Rubbish: Renaissance

Picking up discarded things


and looking at them,
tracing them with my eyes and pen,




is a kind of renaissance,


in which a piece of pipe becomes monumental, bottle tops are reborn as a gem collection or a troupe of dancers holding out their skirts, and a flattened can lies on my page like a classical reclining nude.

  4. Yes! As our friend Issa knew, there is often use in old things:

    in an old bucket
    rice plants rustle
    fireflies flit
