The Process – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines – Discovery


Image: ‘Vox Angelica’ by Max Ernst –

“Painting is not for me either decorative amusement, or the plastic invention of felt reality; it must be every time: invention, discovery, revelation.”  Max Ernst


The Process

The giant bird and I became friends
though sometimes she left me alone far
from home and, no matter my peregrinations,
I was always only ever myself, discovery
was never the end it was the process.
