Bunny Angels

April 13, 2020

4/13/20


148 artspace lockdown:

spending our days
in the studio
door locked
curtain drawn
dan deep in his music
composing . notating . orchestrating
a sound score for our new musical … film
 
michael at his work table
his hands deep in clay
… a trio
of naked bunny creatures
appear
 
they call themselves
art angels
flying above and below
around and through
the walls that close us in
the fear and separation
these days seem to hold
