Poet Matthew Goff was inspired by the works of Raquel Fornasaro and Wendy Shapiro to write two pieces of poetry for our current show, Be Here Now.
Matthew Goff’s work was also part of our poetry-art collaboration “Synaesthesia.”
We’re delighted to be able to feature his work again!
“Terraforming”, Raquel Fornasaro
Protection of sprouting earth
Precious green growth in the cosmos
Separate delicate life, in a field of red dirt
Whirling sky-burst flows by constellations
“Hear me out”, Raquel Fornasaro + Wendy Shapiro
A breathing-life replaced
Preference for another life
The breathing-life disappears
Enjoyment seems to remain
