THE PROBLEM OF WILD IDENTITY--RED
acrylic on illustration
board 20" x 30"
You can go to Madagascar,
Venezuela and Nebraska
Cross the stark Strait of Makassar, trek from Tunis to Timbuktu
You'll see tragopans and troupials, chiropterans and marsupials,
Spend weeks ranking and grouping all variety of snake or shrew.
Over a lifetime's
exploration fueled by animal admiration
And obsessional observation of feathers, fur and a fang or two
In matters zoological, you can see it's not illogical
To presume some mythological, like the improbable kangaroo.
