NEW WORK: Promises

(some times we make) Promises (we never mean to keep)
Promises-Soul House Assemblage

here's a new soul house assemblage. 

inspired by a line from a song... amazing how that happens, right?

The Promise
 Those tears on a gaping voice
Who's stretching arms match the hunger of mine

There lips will they never join

But always draw me closer and further entwined

With a promise dealer, understand all freedoms fade away

To a point of view, where many different pathways meet

And we're standing on this precipice with nothing much to save

But the deep blue screams of falling dreams with our next move
Heaven hide your eyes
Heaven's eyes will never dry

The shades of a thousand steel

Come flashing by my face in the fury of war

In desolation and abandoned fields

The hungry make their stand when they'll stand for no more

Hear the passion in their voices see the heaven in their eyes
Their hopes and schemes are waiting dreams of less than paradise
And sometimes we make promises we never mean to keep
And blackmail is the only deal a promise dealer sees
Heaven hide your eyes

Heaven's eyes will never dry

Any guesses on who wrote the song? Musically, not a huge stretch for me. 

You will be able to see this piece LIVE and up close at the South End Art Hop, in two weeks. I will be showing my work in a few spots, notably @ Alderson / Jordan Silverman Studio in the Soda Plant.

Thanks for stopping by... here's to a wonderfully creative day!
