“Octo”

The night before the event, a few of us took to the sidewalks and chalked. I drew a rather large octopus queen with a royal crown and third jeweled eye. Last night during the art walk, I had some time to write about her:

"Couple #2" by Billimarie Lubiano Robinson - "I'm in love with you / means I got lucky // like losing a map / then finding a road // but I love you / forces life // back into promise / decrepit kisses, conversation // the beauty being sometimes / it works" (Typewriter Poetry)

“Couple #2”

Here’s another poem for the Couples Series I’ve been collecting. This one came to me during my time in Hawaii, while I was walking around and enjoying the landscapes around me.

"Couple #11" by Billimarie Lubiano Robinson - "this ain't sand / we're stepping on, but pebbles / polished stone, our bodies warmed / by fires inside // thank you, vodka / and pineapples" (Typewriter Poetry)

“Couple #11”

Now that I’m back home, I can upload the rest of the couples series I wrote for National Poetry Month. I’m not sure if I should continue taking pictures of the poems, or just scan them into the computer. Which image style do you think is best? Here’s an example of a scanned poem, and here’s an example of a photographed poem. Would love your opinions! Thanks 🙂
