if your words had eyes

this drawing came to life on my dining room table in mystic, connecticut. i got out of the way and let my hand draw what it wanted. i have been amazed at the feeling my hand captured on the faces – all three of them.

she doesn’t look happy, does she? he looks a bit dismayed.  that infant hovering above the expanse between them looks more curious than anything else. is it a thought-infant? a real infant they created together? i wonder.

he appears to be dressed as a jester. and it seems he is making some sort of offering. she glances so forcefully over her shoulder. neither he nor she has arms, yet it is still obvious she has an invisible hand on her hip.

are they stitched together by a bent paper clip? perhaps the real question my hand asked that afternoon is this:  what connects these two?

are they in the same room? do they see the same thing?

and who is saying “if your words had eyes i could see them?” is she? is he? the infant looks too young to ask such a thing – but perhaps that’s some new kind of precocious child the likes of which we have not before seen.
