the paintings have been painted
the ceramics baked, glazed, out of the oven
created by hand for a specific purpose
to embody beliefs
for the next meal
and/or ways of questioning, making sense
the objects are marked by time
possibly they will become part of someone
like they are now
for a moment
part of the house
it was a stone with your face on it! infinitesimal.
i open the door, greet dog, step outside, dog greets me
one by one they go
beneath, on, and above the ground, the sunflower touching all three.
