“To tell the truth I can’t explain my art, or even my working methods. It’s like the person who asked Pavlova, ‘What does the Dying Swan signify?’ and she answered, ‘If I knew, I wouldn’t dance it.’” – Francis Bacon on his art.
Seated Figure, 1960
sam of the ten thousand things
Sam Rasnake, a sardonic twist of fate, is a pathetic excuse for a poet who once dreamed he was a human who dreamed he was a teacher who thought he could play guitar. Along the way - a soul-mate, two children - one collection, Necessary Motions; three chapbooks, Religions of the Blood, Lessons in Morphology, and Inside a Broken Clock. He even thinks he edits a magazine - Blue Fifth Review.
