30 Poems for Artists: Micheál Rowsome

Live Art, Poetry, Yleinen

In the inspiring artist residency of Ponderosa, Germany, I wrote one poem for each fellow artist, curator and worker at the residency. The poems were then performed at a Poet’s Reception on 2nd October 2014.

Micheál was a cheerful fellow artist in Ponderosa, with a peculiar character and thought. He seemed to fall in love with anything prescious around him, be it working in the garden with broccoli, creating birthday surprises to others (we had many birthday parties during that 2 week time!) or finding the essence of any suitable form of art. Micheál is an artist with many talents and a very open attitude, and I’m sure it is the attitude that will take him far. For him, though, ”far” may as well mean the same as ”close”. I’m also looking forward to seeing what will happen when he gets up on the stage with a microphone again; as that truly seems to be the place for him. He is both a stand-up comedian and a philosophical analyst of life and all thing beyond.

How can you be so funny and cunning

Copper-headed and humor-sensing

with a peculiar gaze and thought

And you get interviewed quite a lot?
