My dear friend Kitty Jospé has written a poem about the work shown here, titled
"X-Tower #1" - a work exhibited on its own in a group show in April 2011.
"X-Tower #1" is part of a 34-print set called "Light and Form, Time and Space" which will be exhibited at Image City Photography Gallery in Rochester, New York, where I will be the featured artist. The opening reception will be June 17, 2011, 5 - 8:30 pm and will be open to the public free of charge.
Kitty has referred to me as "a fabulous magician who helps us see." This is a wonderful comment from a poet whose work I admire. I am grateful to her for allowing me to to show you this poem publicly for the first time, as well as to quote her comment.
In a great city, a sky-scraper lyre,
Played by light arrowed into bull’s eyes
Nothing shakes the lines, caught as if tacked
by still-burst spots, starred eyes
Black and white singing or silent,
Depending on the ears of your eyes
No lack of good or bad luck for six keys
strumming vertical shine. Which are “I’s”?
Buildings saying, I, I, waiting to be seen.
Clean force, cleared forest, aye, aye
A chance to view in black and white
What might not strike the inner eye
Piano keys and rockets singing empty blues
two claps of sun revise

This poem is a response to a black and white photo by D. G. Adams entitled "X-Tower #1."
It will be shown along with other work at the Image City Photography Gallery in an exhibit opening June 17.
