Poem in Conversation with Joseph Cornell

Cornell Meets Silverstein
A place to elude the weighty stresses
of life. A seat shaped and molded to provide com-
fort for minutes or even hours upon
time. Paper light and soft reassuring
the bearer that progress is being made
and bounds overcome. Four walls and a lock
to prevent interruption and ensure
safety. A handle that will case your trou-
bles into the see. And finally, a
continuous flow of water to wash
away what you don't want to see.

- Julius Thompson
