These poems are attempts at a poetry somewhat equivalent to a Polaroid snapshot. In this sense, the poems have some of the qualities of Pop art in its breezy incorporation of many of the visual and verbal idioms of our popular culture. Indeed, how could it do otherwise, given the medium? But the poems also have some of the more endearing qualities of Polaroids: they are records of specific moments that are quick, highly visual, and taken from odd angles. I might add, and this may be unnecessary given all that I have just said, that they also have many of the qualities of everyday speech, something I am obsessed with and which I hope adds to their "of the moment" quality.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Justin Spring

I am a prizewinning poet, novelist, and video artist who works in many mediums: print, audio (CD), video (DVD ; internet). Among the poetry prizes and honors I have received for my written poetry are: The 1997 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, Finalist 1994 and 1997 Academy of American Poets Walt Whitman National Prize Contest. Among the prizes I have received for my Video Poetry (Dreamstories) are the 2005 John Ringling Individual Artist Fellowship and 2006 State of Florida Individual Artist fellowship. I recently received the 2010 Ringling Towers Literary Award for my novel ALICE HICKEY. The Ringling School of Art has also honored me in 2009 (along with 11 other Sarasota artists) with an Ageless Creativity Award, for my life long creativity in poetry. I am the author of seven collections of written poetry and seven CD collections of oral poetry. I have created over 100 DREAMSTORY videos, performance-poetry videos, art videos and video documentaries about poetry. Finally, I was educated at Columbia College and am the founder of SOULSPEAK (www.soulspeak.org)
