The gifted psychologist’s field-guide to difference
1. Being a photographer
Studying Laurence Aberhart, he takes up his camera, empties
the land of everyone except me, paints the bare pathos of
what remains in black and white photography.
2. Being a writer
Studying Janet Frame, he builds a shed of words
stronger than my nerves; within, we write,
eat, dance and sleep safe in our knowledge
that the people we meet have skins white as paper.
3. Being a painter
Studying Stanley Palmer, he wings me to a canvas desolate
as a godwit’s flight; below cadmium sky, in oily air, we nest
until the pull of somewhere else rises us
to paint ourselves at the edge of the picture.
