Artists that I find enchanting right now are Andrei Tarkovsky, Jorge Luis Borges, Gauguin, Truffaut, Sonic Youth, Darren Aronofsky, Xu Bing, Peter Hoeg, Robert Bresson, Magic Dirt, My Bloody Valentine, Funkadelic/Parliament, Shostakovich, Albert Lamorisse, Palle Mikkelborg, Trilok Gurtu, Tom Waits, Charlie Chaplin, (the soulful) and Shlomo Carlbach... Also fascinated by horticulture (and ikebana) , social justice, film theory, mysticism, symbology, not-for-profit orgs, tsumami kanzashi, Kanja and Hebrew scripts and language in general, and really enjoy the 'Australian Centre for Moving Images'... I also find inspiration through my Grandfather and Great Uncle: Tossy and Jascha Spivakovsky...I sing, write songs, play guitar and drums, ... My poetry is characterised by its accessiblity and strong imagery.
Spanish Horse Boy
That Europe wants cast from places too wet and damp
that actual humans can't inhabit
I can teach you how to be more human
But your grass grains kept my Elders alive
And they covered for you when they ran into the night with their diamonds.
Your eyes are such dark pearls
