 Such Flowers Love One When Nothing Else Does

Welcome 2008! Above please find new work by painter, Cara Ober. I have the privilege of sharing some titles, ala John Ashbery/Jane Hammond, with Ober in an effort to inspire her latest. So far, two results to kick off the new year. Find the other one, “Into the Shadows We Go …” by clicking here.

From those titles, I concocted a few poems. You’ll find one, “A Kind of Headless Guilt Emerges”, in The Portable Boog Reader 2, An Anthology of New York City Poetry, edited by Laura Elrick, Brenda Iijima, Mark Lamoureux, Christina Strong, Rodrigo Toscano, and David Kirschenbaum.

Fellow poet, Ana Božičević-Bowling has also used the titles to write a few poems as well. The contagion is on … you’ll find her version of “A Kind of Headless Guilt Emerges” within the very same anthology, along with work by:
