Native American Space Pilot


Native American Space Pirate
            for Tiffany Horan

Scanned envelopes hide a layer
like Rachel's boxes
meaning
drags itself through memory

Investigate       art equals release
like Saturday slumber
and clearing snow

A bought inspiration manuscript
reveals desire
head dress
reveals history

such back story transforms into
line drawing
into painting

the best art reveals itself like sunlight

How true, that last, and touches despite geographical variants, penetrating densities. We experience in levels.
