Poem: On Moe Brooker’s “Present Futures”

present futures
Present Futures, Moe Brooker 2006

Only with a knowing could he streak and scribble like that
Perfect squares – beautifully blighted by clouds of color
These aren’t the spatters and chaos of accident
But a sage lover’s improvisations
Spectral waves in vibrant intimacy
rubbed squiggled and smudged
Creation’s joy is in the making
Formless hue that vibrates and sings
Sherbet, jade, marigold, deepening royal and fuzzy minor lavender
There is rhythm in this frenzy
A meter, sure
But barlines were made to be broken
And joy, like pink, can be found in chancing splotches.

    • I’m so honored and thrilled you read it…I was just at a party in a home with two of your pieces, and was entranced once more by your work. Thank YOU.:)

  1. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
