C. Mehrl Bennett squirrel greyed

Squirrels are like rats in that they forage and build nests

However, squirrels live in trees and rats are under foot

               But who am I to judge?

 

I am just another creature like a squirrel or a rat

We also forage and build out nests, fornicate

               and reproduce, nurture our offspring

 

As a mere creature of this larger universe

These overhead and underfoot beings

               seem AMAZING to me

 

Humans, all you seers and thinkers, doers and polluters

Stop and ask: What effect do we have on our environment?

               Left foot, Left an imprint so “what/where is Right?”

My accordian book titled: FOURTEEN PICTOGLYPH STORIES, was created using a series of pictoglyphs I designed. (See THIS separate posting at this blog for a slideshow about that accordian book)  I had these rubber stamps made from many of the glyphs.

This series of images was used for a small inkjet printed accordian book which is about 2.20″ x 2.50″ folded. Some of the materials and processes I used to create it are presented in a section of this slide show. I have had a few of these glyphs made into rubber stamps to use in my correspondence art. CLICK HERE for a closer look at my rubber stamp designs that grew out of this process of drawing/writing my picto glyphs.

I wrote this poem in 2013 and recorded the audio then as well.
Originally I’d created a video using jpegs found online, but they were low resolution and didn’t quite say what I wanted to express. So now, (2014) I’ve drawn the illustrations instead, and remade the video. Enjoy!
