Kevin Beasley’s Raw Materials | Art21 “New York Close Up”

what is our relationship to this material? … are we really taking the time to process and understand these things? … setting up a scenario where people can take the time is as much as i can really offer.

New Year’s Day

Wikipedia Poem, No. 883

        Like a final decision?
No.
Then it—

    I know
the sound
of yr idling
presence
   of cheap life:
        this
too late,
son.

sale for free

vertigo
without orientation

 sale
 for free

 vertigo
without
        weird
        lines.

       Statistically speaking, engine rich
   with gasoline
    
the stations
the
    desirable ones at least
         between dick and
burn it down.

I know the
sound of yr idling
about wild
   
weird
lines appear
       or disappear
 or
         then disappear
        and disappear
    or disappear.

Portrait of a Man in a Red Turban (Self-Portrait)

look first  that's the point
how does algae grow
so deeply photosynthetic
am i asking you or am i
muttering moon mad
either way i see myself

of course  in that master's
eyes surrounded by all
the thin cracks in the pain
the crow's feet tighten
around the rosette wire
at the bottom of the sea
