Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Wyeth

Art. Real life.
Reduced to a square
inch drawing
me back in
-to a world of words. Right there,
in line to buy stamps.

In the summer of 2017, the US Postal Service released a pane of 12 postage stamps bearing Andrew Wyeth artwork. This was during a drought of writing poetry for me. Seeing the sheet of stamps behind the glass at the counter, I was flooded with a jumble of words. Wyeth’s postage stamps inspired a brief round of ekphrastic poetry for me.
