Life and Limb

A Poem In Memoriam: Carol Hepper, renowned artist, 1953–2021

Devil’s Curve by Carol Hepper; 2008, 23" x51" x 11", wood, cardboard, pigment, foam, rope, glue

This year especially
the irony of the first in bloom
on the last day I’d ever see you
Witch Hazel divining spring
before breath turns invisible
those unearthly blossoms in March
gone before its begun
