Studio Ghosts – Drowning in Ideas

by Mary Lamphere

I calleth to my muse.
Fill me with ideas, I beg.
My cup runneth.
I sip.
More, I demand.
My cup filleth.
I chug.
Excellent, I sigh.
My cup sloppeth.
I wade.
Okay, I say.
My cup floodeth.
I splash.
Enough, I cry.
My cup drowneth.
I sink.
Damn you, Muse, I gurgle.
Dam you!

Mary is one of six In Print members to have her work featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.

Abbie’s piece and the others have been framed at the gallery and are available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford.
