INTHEIR DAY

 

I

arrived

flesh cut C section fresh

under

big

we won

superman American city sky

of

Horn&Hardart days

fed well madams & Stetsons will that be all sir

every citizen tame \

stepping as if there were somewhere to be

in those atomic bomb record player times

/ thick oil points & plug change

steelstrong hubris hard driving

lucky strike smoking

w /

fish tail cars

turning Jim Crow corners

down

switch blade film noir streets

About a. edward watkins

With the exception of 2 years study of western music theory and harmony- I am a self taught percussionist, writer and abstract painter. Not your drummer boy drummer - not your writerly writer nor the painterly painter. Creativity is an integral aspect of my existence - as it is for us all - in some form or another. My experiences in life have informed and shaped my world view profoundly. I am the disrupter - the never quite satisfied - the relentless creator of word, sound and image. I question the answers and question the questions.
