I’ll be having a feature poetry show Monday January 11th at Linneman’s. Open mic starts around 8pm and I’ll go on around 9. I believe this is my first Milwaukee show since releasing Carrying

And an “Ed Makowski” coming out party, leaving Eddie Kilowatt on a hanger in the closet for now.

Silk Screened Poem Posters

December 20, 2009

This is pretty much the first piece of artwork I’ve made as an adult. I plan to make more of these photo/poem/screen print works. It’s a starting point. This one was donated to the Feed Your Soul fundraiser. It’s based on a poem called “Existing Resources” which reads:

The thief who stole my car

and drove til gas ran dry

was kind enough

to leave their

flathead screwdriver

in the ashtray.

and after a gallon can of fuel

I use it to start my car too

This was part of  a collaboration with a photographer, Jennifer Tomaloff. She sent me a bunch of pictures and pretty much said, “Write whatever they make you think of.” This is one of the results.
