Saint Billy on my Birthday

the voice
your snowed mute muzzle in winter
period the expanse from the rock is white
30 years round the muscle and one hoof
is white in its period

the horns sound
the tunevalance
a path and its dimensions

that a tongue’s dallying colors
the muffler the snow meets
that a hand is awhile in the sun
from salt to lichen to fluke to back
to me
birthing aloud buh buh ill ill ee
(poem by Adrian Kien)

About the drawing:
The original drawing is from a collaborative series my husband, Adrian Kien, and I just completed. For this series I completed a drawing and he would use that as his point of departure for his poem. Together they form small prayer cards to the various saints of our choosing. Through these prayers we found access to certain strange areas between language and oil pastel rubbed over the finger. And like the meditative act of prayer – these pieces represent our communion with art and each other. The bones that make up our hands as we create will eventually decay into a powder and we will know no authority. I did this drawing for my husband on his birthday because mountain goats are his spirit animal.
