Utility Pole: Day 13

As we walked around Portland, we kept seeing utility poles and trees layered in paper fliers until they seemed to bulge in their paper dresses.

Utility Pole

 

Layers of paper

announcing

a sale

tonight’s concert

an upcoming community event

piled,

flier upon flier

telling stories

as fibers melt

running together and joining

to become a part of the pole

expanding girth

paper upon paper upon paper

what is the utility of the pole?

bulletin board

or art?

And a student poem:

Guitar

Plucked with delight
Strummed with music

A fat body
Long slender neck
Sounds flowing from the heart

Cody

What object are you seeing and sensing in a new way today?
