Zing and fling

Muffle and kerfuffle

words that rhyme.

The repetition

dulling bright intellects

in leaden precious pockets.

This redundancy

this mindless work

a steady stream of liquid pink on crisp paper

scallop after scallop

sharp scissors

and glue:


flaxen sunlight on pale winter skin

before an eager tearing of envelopes

a melting of veins


spirits rising over hill and dale

and vast landscapes,

miles and feet between.

Strangers, friends, and lovers uniting

in a gleeful tangle

of mirth

made by one

but for us all.

Art & Letters is a collaboration:

Art by Maren Jensen

Interpreted by Colleen Sohn
