On abandon, uncalled for but called forth...

Masao Yamamoto

"On abandon, uncalled for but called forth.
                                                                              The hydrangea
Of  her crushed each year a little more into the attar of  herself.
Pallid. Injured, wildly capable.
A throat to come home to, tupelo.
                                                Lemurs in parlors, inconsolable.
Parlors of burgundy and sleigh. Unseverable fear.
Wistful, woke most every afternoon
                                In the green rooms of the Abandonarium.
                                                Beautiful cage, asylum in.
Reckless urges to climb celestial trellises that may or may not
                                 Have been there.
So few wild raspberries, they were countable,
                                 Triaged out by hand.
Ten-thousand-count Egyptian cotton sheets. Intimacy with others,
                                 Sateen. Extreme hyacinth as evidence.
Her single subject the idea that every single thing she loves
                                 Will (perhaps tomorrow) die.
High editorial illusion of   “Control.” Early childhood: measles,
                                                                              Scarlet fevers;
Cleopatra for most masquerades, gold sandals, broken home.
Convinced Gould’s late last recording of the Goldberg Variations
Was put down just for her. Unusual coalition of early deaths.
Early middle deaths as well. Believed, despite all evidence,
In afterlife, looked hopelessly for corroborating evidence of  such.
                                                                                          Wisteria, extreme.
There was always the murmur, you remember, about going home."

The New Collectible Art Photography
by Eyemazing Susan
Thames & Hudson Publishers

p. 244  Katia Chausheva

I pre-ordered this publication in the beginning of Summer, mainly because someone dear to me is in the book.  It arrived today a month ahead of schedule.  I'm so taken back by the enormity of it, 544 pages of art at its very finest and rarity.  
This book is a collection of a decade of exceptional and utterly unique photography featured in EYEMAZING magazine an international quarterly that began in 2003.

It's available on Amazon

A quote inside it's covers ~ 

"Like fireflies they are!
I cling to them and feel being lifted.
I am holding my breath, not feeling the floor.
Not feeling attached anymore... where do I go?"

--Kamil Vojnar
