Scarred Walls (For Talissa & Ivor)
Memories of you and me in this room.
Did the walls bear witness to every whisper, every moan?
Secrets in hearts forever entombed in pulsating chambers.
Our lies inscribed on scarred walls of crumbling plaster.
I touch the flakes of peeling paint.
Like frail promises, they disintegrate.
Press your ears to these walls.
Do you yet hear the faint pulse?
This poem was inspired by a conversation I had with my friend, Ivor.

A Word From Our Sponsor, Talissa
Having cast creative shadows from the Big Apple to the Twin Cities,
German-Mexican artist Talissa Mehringer is currently communicating her
surreal vision of the world in Budapest. This multimedia junkie is
hooked on intense art-direction and making things, and has been
sculpting + painting a trail of nightmarish figures across cities for
years. She currently has lots of new creatures or ‘Heebie Jeebie
Dolls’ in the works- each one is handmade from start to finish,
painted and dressed to represent their grotesque little personalities,
but it’s no easy task as they keep biting…
