 Chance Juxtapositions?


Crowded street.

A pin drops.

It is silent.





Even Kings










Co exist




He stole fire.

Who stole him?

  1. Hey, Sam,
    This poem (and the images) pack a punch.

    Can’t help but wonder about those images– where and when, and is there really a sculpture that looks like that somewhere? (Complete or in-, with or without the missing body parts, if we can call the crucial center “parts”).

    Your writing her is so nice, sparing of words and simple rhythm, and gets you right where you needed to go with this. Thank you for sharing it.

    Thanks also for your reads and your “Likes” on my blog.

    • Elaine, to the best of my knowledge, the sculpture by Bruno Catalano is real. It is done in bronze and is one from his series of “Missing Pieces” and is located somewhere in France. I also was a bit curious about how the statue was done (and how tall it was). All his “Missing Pieces” statues invariably carry some sort of a bag, suit case or musical instrument or globe or something such by the look of it. I don’t know if that gives us a clue about how it holds up. Though I have only seen pictures of his work, it appears that Besharat Gallery in Atlanta contains one of his works and that the statue is about 3 feet tall

      (by a report)

      Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind words on what I write.

      You do have a beautiful blog.

      • Thank you for the info and link on Bruno Catalano. I think maybe I have actually seen some of his work on line before, considering it again– the French connection seems to ring a bell. Quite striking.

        Thanks even more for your attention to and nice responses to my work.

  2. Only glad to be of help. The image was forwarded to me by my younger brother sometime ago with some info on the sculptor because it caught his interest.

    Yeah, there seems to be plenty of sites displaying images of Bruno Catalano’s works over the internet.

    In one of them I caught an amusing comment on the French connection too 😉
