#39 Familiar Objects

Floating objects are a
common enough theme
in the paintings of
Magritte. Over-
done it could almost
be said; but not quite
since suspension
requires a suspension
of belief, & each painting
is refreshed & re-
freshing, creating
its own unique
atmospheric pressures,
a re-awakening
of surprise. Here
we have a singular
form seen from
multiple aspects; & in the air
the singularity
of multiple objects
that have no right
to be there, held
in suspense by
a single held-
in breath.
