Fred Wilder mixed media artwork 12 x 16 x 1 inches on stretched canvas with wood rails. Made with acrylic paint. This is an original painting by artist Fred Wilder. The painting was created in 1999 and the poem was written at the same time. Poems often come to me with an image that I draw or paint and then some times a short film in my headbone plays while I write the poems. I often make film shorts that combine spoken word poetry. Fred has been working on a new book a collection of poems and this painting was rediscovered while researching the book POETRY OF FILTH. You can pickup a copy of this Filthy little book for yourself at:

(The Poem)
Unicorns come from a dangerous place
from clouds of dark matter shrouded in discordant sounds from the bad regions of outer-space.

Unicorns muscles thrash and stampede, yet a Unicorns caress tenderly fills every need.

Unicorn’s horn thrust deep into flesh, tear out the heart of thine enemies, if that is thy wish.

Unicorns race keep a tight grip on the main
the wind at your face, ride safe in the knowledge of Unicorns praise for their strength and their magic come from a dangerous place.
Its only to the chased that Unicorns bow, seeking only those with mind fertile and imagination well plowed.
(c)Fred Wilder 1999
