No Angel


...with the animals dying around us
our lost feelings we are saying thank you
with the forests falling faster than the minutes
of our lives we are saying thank you
with the words going out like cells of a brain
with the cities growing over us like the earth
we are saying thank you faster and faster
with nobody listening we are saying thank you
we are saying thank you and waving
dark though it is

--from "Thanks," W.S. Merwin (1988)

  1. I know you haven't mentioned actually selling your artwork... but Olaiya and I were thinking we'd be interested in purchasing two or three pieces to adorn our new apartment, if you can bring yourself to part with some of them.

  2. How very lovely that you and Olaiya wish to purchase some pieces.

    When you're ready, just let me know what pieces you are interested in and I'll let you know if they are available.
