Poem up at The Ekphrastic Review

Henry Darger blk s

My untitled response to Henry Darger is among those posted today at the Ekphrastic Review.  His work is a rich source for collage as well as words.

Natalie Merchant was inspired to produce a haunting song about him.

What do we really know about anyone else?  Darger’s work is a testament to how much is always hidden from view.  You can read about Henry Darger here.

          1. It’s like he tapped into another world. Have you read any of his writings? I just wonder if they are coherent. I read a graphic novel about Promethea that gave me that same sense of otherworldliness, one I was scared to go back into.

    1. I’ve been collecting for years–magazines, catalogs, books I buy at book sales. When I worked in the fashion industry, I had lots of good magazines to cut from. But 20 years ago there was a lot more printed media available…most of it’s gone now. So more and more I buy used books.
