Some poems from “B Is for Bad Poetry” by Pamela August Russell
these are amazing.
Spencer Finch - 366, Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year (2009)
This work is based on Emily Dickinson in 1862, when she wrote 366 poems in 365 days. It is a real-time memorial to that year, which burns for exactly one year. The sculpture is comprised of 366 individual candles arranged in a linear sequence, each of which burns for 24 hours. The colour of each candle matches a colour mentioned in the corresponding poem. For the poems in which no colour is mentioned, the candles are made out of natural paraffin.

That sleeps in me
grow conscious of each other, or else my weary face
takes refuge in them.
And I feel that it was worth being born just to hear the wind blow.
— Fernando Pessoa (via nirvikalpa)
— Edgar Allen Poe (via iamadragonslayer)
that gathers to your touch…
Just when the body thinks it knows
the ways of knowing itself,
this second skin continues to answer.
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
