David Wagoner, American, born 1926
Cackling, smelling of camphor, crumbs of pink icing
An Invocation, 2009, stained glass, cut, sandblasted, engraved, painted, fired and held by copper foil.
Judith Schaechter, American, born 1961. On show at the Arts League, Philadelphia in 2015.
Invocation: to call in.
Clinging to her lips, her lipstick smeared
Halfway around her neck, her cracked teeth bristling
With bloody splinters, she leans over my shoulder.
Oh my only hope, my lost dumbfounding baggage,
My gristle-breasted, slack-jawed zealot,
kiss me again.
