Zombie eyes, self-portrait with poem, William Eaton, 2019

Homme aux yeux mauves

How much of life passes in a dimmer light; / Mid a little bit of hopping, mostly we snore? Image inspired by Picasso’s “Homme au maillot.” As for the poem laid on top—inspired by an aging prostate?

Eaton - Poem for a warm, cold spring day (with art)

Poem mixed with drawing

James Joyce called attention to our “epiphanies,” but some of us live through days upon days filled with epiphanies and storms and wild hopes and dullness . . . Et “Quand c’est fini, N-i, ni, ni, Ça recommence” (Léo Ferré). Which leads to a poem overlaid on a drawing, and accompanied by another drawing, done in the café of the Rubin Museum. Vita longa, ars brevis?
