my spanish poem…

spanish is a beautiful language
so why does it signify pain to me?
because of what people say to me
she is speaking in a foreign language
another words, I am speaking in other words
I am speaking what they don’t understand or don’t want to understand
the language of pain, the language of exclusion,
the language of escape, the language of forced love – salvation

maybe it is this way because in order to solve
your problem you must be exiled in a foreign country
that is part of the game -
and even then there probably is no solution to the problem
just an ongoing extension of the same dilemma

normally most people wanting to escape would go south I’m sure – to Mexico
but for some reason I ended up in France,
so my language of escape is french, maybe it can actually bring me escape
because at present I am feeling fluent spanish,
very very very very very very fluent, but it comes out in french because I want love
and I like Escargot! Yes car go—- God, I have been driven insane!!!

Normally most people wanting to escape would go south I’m sure – to Mexico,
but for some reason I ended up in France… ? This is about seeking life, liberty, dreams, and love. This is about trying to escape pain, death, abuse, and hate. The Spanish language represents the pain in my mind, spirit, body, and heart. The French language represents the hope of rebirth, romance, love, and life. I am a conscientious objector and this is about political persecution, escape, exile, and the realization that there is no escape, from the State, even in a foreign country.

I have a deep love for expressionism – ‘Expressionistic artist sought to develop pictorial forms which would express their innermost feelings rather than represent the external world. Expressionist painting is intense, passionate and highly personal, based on the concept of the painter’s canvas as a vehicle for demonstrating emotions. Violent, unreal color and dramatic brushwork make the typical expressionistic painting quiver with vitality.’ This is what I try to achieve when I paint.
