Kevin’s Office, And Mine
by Jim Rapp
I just read an NYT piece
depicting Kevin Young’s office;
photos mainly, intent to tease
the reader’s inquisitiveness.
Everyone likes to peek back
into a hideaway; a way
to ascertain through artifact
seen, what mere words refuse to say.
I described, a few years back, my
office/bedroom/den before I
moved to Valhalla – Eastridge, I
should say – where now I make sparks fly.
On an anvil of flinty brain,
I shape, unseen, among the stuff
an NYT photog could aimhis lens at: jewels . . . ’mongst the dust.
