APRIL 14 – APRIL 28, 2017
Threshold of Revelation
The offering at the precipice:
s t i l l.
Action begins at the heart of the bud—
Blooming then fruit
(then culling the flock)
secret cyclical dynamics
The spinner hands the weaver a silver seed
The animal presents the icon with
The gift of a gold bouquet
Plastic picnic arousal
The bears are coming out of their caves
