Forty Years #14: Poetry of Paul Marion

The first texts I worked with by a contemporary writer were the poems of Paul Marion. I met Paul at the same art festival in the Lowell Memorial Auditorium where I met the people who were forming Art Alive! He read his poetry and I soon after asked him for permission to write out his poems. I exhibited them at the National Park Service across the street from Art Alive! on Merrimack Street. Salmon Ladders was one of the poems from the exhibit.

I later exhibited my renderings of Paul's poems at the Whistler House,

Lowell City Hall,
and recently as part of New England Haiku at the Masscribes exhibit at the Moseley Courthouse in Boston.

We also did a book project, South Common Haiku, and I hope there may be another one in our future.
