Are you there?, Singleton 2007 outsider art, Bachman 2007 words

Are You Still There?

Black and
blue
jean goodbye;
golden she
on the rocks
technicolor glory
saving all the best
for first,
for last..
and between.



Are you out there,
yes, you
butterfly amplifier?

are you on the eleven?
say what?
say what again...

You know only one voice
and it's feeding you
every sweet rumor--

unique names for any
technicolor nightmare
that falls from heaven

It's just drama,
raining
You know her far too well
to let that story toll true
Because it's all poetry,
technicolor dreams
with your own subtitles

Black and blue clouds,
butterflies at eleven--exactly what you said
I remember:
before
she went to the beach
telling stories today
in shadows and light
and her own language
that I only know
a small part of..

she's at eleven,
twelve
and one......

the last,
the first,
the moment time
slips up,
straight up,
on the rocks,

call her name--listen
a wave crashing the sands
to millions of fine dreams;

mermaids
are called these things
as well

...Sing said some words, whispered them across the porch, almost taken by the breeze, except that the idea was so pretty I had to grab her hand. The words new what way to fly. I let them go and wrote down where they went. They followed Sing, just like Skinny noticed.

I was writing to the lady in this drawing, before and after seeing her for the first time. Singleton deserves credit for her part in the poem, so here it is, in my own writing.

Your color sense is just wonderful...colorful but subdue at the same time

eric....
"mermaids

I kind of love that part!

drips.....Thank you, it actually all depends on what's in the color box.....the favorites disappearing first, until all that's left is what's on the floor..... Saturday after I bonked my head, a neighbor walked over and handed me a beautiful box of watercolors, found when cleaning out a closet. I can't wait to wade in their vibrancy....

Peace my friends

WoW! She's so beautiful~ I love the texture like fabric through out this piece, especially in her hair. Earthy colors... Spanisheyes~ Tilted crown of Rumors... She looks content. Another amazing Goddess by Singleton.

Hello?
Between 12 & 3, I found only me.
No longer waiting, I am free.
Moving forward, moving on
Cut and Run...
The strings from yesterday
wrapped around my head
help to keep my hair outta my eyes
Cut and Run

singleton said...

but I love this girl, too. Her eyes are so clear and smiling.

She, and blue mascara who trevor'll probably buy ar my also favorites. Their eyes are all so beautiful. You remember to make them wink a little and smile in light little breezy butterflies like this girl, or twisting, all-knowing, all-loving grins, like mona lisa in love with the pool guy and her painter...

singleton said...

Eric...OMG! LOL! Who told you about my pool boy?

the mona-wanna-minute-alona smile says it without need of words...

singleton said...

Eric....And you don't miss a beat....
