One of the stamps that I should bring to your attention is thebookwormslunch.com that is marie's non-mail art website. In case you don't know, Marie makes artist books and writes poets; she makes books of arresting originality, her photos are exquisite and her poetry affecting. So, you can imagine how I felt when I opened the envelope and discovered the original pages of her recent 'Tree Poems'. Aren't poets and artists meant to save (or sell) those originals?
Marie sent me a little letter too, in it she told me she had decided to free the original tree poems, so sent them TO ME.
The poems are on what I imagine to be daily scraps. I guess they are trashpo in their own way.
Or you can download the book from scribd.
Marie has been traveling with work, to DC this time, where she must have been to the postal museum, because she picked up some freebies that she enclosed in the envelope.
Lots to read, look at and think about here and I love the image of attempting to grow a forest on quicksand! Many many thanks, Marie!
