Newfoundland- Biographical Note #1

 

 

on board the Whispering Sea-
the text on this drawing reads as follows:

 

 

out of the belly...
she came... alive
out of the gut..
steamed five

and so it starts,
my berth
it's birth

pulled aboard
umbilical cord

tying... we, the three
binding... me, to She
trapping the time
holding the line,
adrift
on the salt-sweet sea

 

 

a bending- a binding
a berth on the water
