A Tribute to The Dead (Picabia, Ernst, et. al) from “The Dead”

collage poem


On of the things I love about living in the city is the greater possibility of chance happenings of a somewhat unusual variety over those possible elsewhere. Carol and I were walking to the subway here in Philly about 3 weeks ago and as we were crossing Market Street I looked down and right there in the middle of the street – probably having been run over a few times already – was a very old and yellowed copy of James Joyce’s “The Dead” with its front and back covers and a few intro pages gone.

I told Carol at the time, “I want to try to do something with this,” and this is what resulted.
